About this Item

4to. [8],392,[2],pp. Bound in modern three-quarter calf over marbled boards protected by mylar. Gold-lettering and stamped floral decorations on spine. Raised bands. Modern endpapers. Title-page with decorative woodcut border. Title page with author's name spelled incorrectly "Raphe." Second edition of Brooke's famous 'Catalogue of English Nobility,' profusely illustrated throughout with woodcuts of coats of arms. Ralph Brooke (1553-1625) was an English Officer of Arms in the reigns of Elizabeth I and James I. The first edition was published in 1619 and was full of errors, which intensified the already excising feud between Brooke and William Camden, a fellow Officer of Arms. In the foreword of this edition, Brooke fails to take responsibility and blames his printer William Jaggard for the mistakes in the first edition. Augustine Vincent, a friend of Camden, set the record straight in his 1622 work 'A Discoverie of Errors' in which he points out that Brooke, not Jaggard, was responsible for the errors. Jaggard happily served as the printer on Vincent's work. Decorative initials and headpieces. One page-added manuscript (tipped-in) with code of arms. Some entries annotated in text, few sentences with underlining. Age wear on boards. Paper-split along gutter on free front endpaper, firmly holding. Water staining on few pages. Rippling to leaves. Some errors in paging, as published. Overall very good condition. Fascinating 17th-century work on the genealogy of English nobility. Rare, complete second edition. Bookseller Inventory # 23968
