To which is annexed, an Exact Chronology of all its Rulers and Governors, both in Church and State. Also, an Excellent Discourse of the Island of Man
London: John Streeter, 1656. First. hardcover. very good. Illustrated with 3 copper engraved folding maps including one of the Isle of Man, and 18 plates (one folding). Small folio, full calf, recased (covers and edges rubbed, browning on inside of covers). London: John Streeter, 1656. Scarce. A very good copy. With the extra engraved title. The above work was writted by William Smith, William Webb, and Samuel Lee; the appendix on the Isle of Man by James Chaloner. The dedication alone is by King; indeed, Dugdale told Wood that he was not able to write one word of true English, being "a most ignorant, silly fellow," and moreover "an arrant knave." The engravings however, are admirably done by King himself in the style of Hollar, and the work is of considerable value.
