About This Item

London: Printed by Jan Jansson, impensis Crispini Passaei Calcographus [sic] et Jansonij Bibliopolae Arnhemiensis, 1620. Hardcover. Very Good. Engraved titlepage with vignette map of England & view of London engraved by Crispijn van de Passe, 67 portrait & other engravings by Willem and Magdalena van de Passe, woodcut historiated initials & tail-pieces. Two Volumes in One small folio (in 6's) fine 19th century morocco, gilt ruled with gilt inner edges and decorated spine on 5 cords, "bound by F. Bedford" (Francis Bedford 1799-1883), All Edges Gilt. Marbled end-papers, [16]pp + 240pp (with pagination continuous) + [2]pp Contents, added leaf at end London 1809 printed for R. Tiphook giving List of Portraits and Places from whence taken. As in some library copies (e.g. those at Cambridge), two leaves of prelims (Post-Praefatio & Admonitio ad Lectorem) are here lacking, possibly to suppress controversial comments in their Latin text. Otherwise this copy is complete, with 240pp including brilliant impressions of all 64 portraits as listed in the Table and 3 other engravings, including the tomb of Queen Elizabeth I (which with 3 of the portraits are plates outside the collation). Pages slightly browned but all clean and crisp throughout. Light pencil notes on end-paper and at end explaining origin of the extra final leaf. *Finely bound copy of this splendid 1620 publication, as described in the DNB article on Henry Holland, whose "reputation as a bookseller was chiefly made by the issue of two elaborately illustrated antiquarian works ... [his] second and more famous illustrated publication appeared in 1620 in two folio volumes, the first dedicated to James I and the second to the universities of Cambridge and Oxford. Holland's letterpress is in Latin throughout ... The work opens with a portrait of Henry VIII, and closes with one of Thomas Holland (d. 1612). There are sixty-five portraits in all, and two engravings of monuments (of Prince Henry and Queen Elizabeth respectively). In one copy in the British Museum there is inserted an old manuscript list of the pictures whence the engravings were made. This was printed in 1809 for insertion in other copies" (as here present at the end). STC 13582 and A.M. Hind, Engraving in England in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, vol ii 145-62.
