About this Item

Octavo. 40, 49-58pp (Text), [8] leaves (plates), [59]-60pp. 19th-century gilt-stamped calf, with gold lettering to spine. Dentelles. Title vignette. Decorative initials and tailpiece. "The Genealogy of the High and Mighty Monarch, James ? King of great Brittayne, &c. with his lineall descent from Noah, by divers direct lynes to Brutus." was intended to show the capability of King James I, as shown by his ancestry, to rule over all the countries of Great Britain. It was compiled at the request of Robert Holland, a Pembrokeshire clergyman, who supplied an introductory letter addressed to the king. The genealogy traced the Stuart descent via Cadwaladr and Brutus to Noah (and so by implication to Adam), thus underlining the Britishness of the royal heredity and the divine and patriarchal nature of kingship. A dedication by Holland (lacking in this copy) spoke of the Druids as 'the first Founders of Philosophy in Europe.'This volume contains the eight leaves of plates, but lacks the folded table. Also lacking is the Dedication page by Robert Holland, and the seven pages of Notes (61-67). Spine heavily rubbed. Minor and sporadic rubbing to covers. Previous owner's name on front free endpaper (Leland N. Carlson). Title remargined. Contemporary previous owner's name (Edward Drier) in ink on title, at upper margin and at verso of two plates (not affecting lettering or images). Fore-edge of several pages repaired. Binding and interior in overall good to good+ condition. About the author: George Owen Harry (1552-1613), was a Welsh antiquary, and rector of Whitchurch in Pembrokeshire.
