About this Item

Large 4to. pp. [8], 63, [1], 108. With 18 engraved plates by W & T. Radclyffe including frontispiece depicting Robert Dudley Earl of Leicester. Included also is a one page portrait of the Elizabethan poet George Gascoigne. Plates show minor to moderate marginal foxing. Text pages are generally clean; a small marginal tear on page 90 is carefully sealed. Inside covers contain marbled paste-downs and plain paper fly-leaves (no marbled fly-leaves present). Re-backed preserving contemporary calf boards – rubbed; gilt fillet boarder lines are restored in several areas; board corner tips are neatly patched. An interesting collection of antiquarian knowledge concerning the town of Kenilworth in Warwickshire. The first section titled "History of Kenilworth Manor, Priory, and Castle" is taken from Sir William Dugdale’s "Warwickshire" with notes added by the editor. The other sections, which are original to this work, include: "Summary of Royal Visits to Kenilworth," "History of Kenilworth Church," and "Survey of Kenilworth Castle in 1821." The last portion of the book contains a collection of entertainments, masques, and poems (including "Lanebam’s Letter" and Gascoigne’s "Princely Pleasures") which were written on the occasion of Queen Elizabeth’s 1575 visit to Kenilworth. This volume apparently inspired Sir Walter Scott to write his novel "Kenilworth." Scott’s name can be found in the list of subscribers at the end of the book [See R. Maxwell, "The Victorian Illustrated Book", pp.46-47 ]. [Avery Architectural Library p. 523]. Bookseller Inventory # 000479
