Title: A Help to English History Containing a Successon of all the Kings of England Etc.
Description: London, Tho. Basset. 1675, First Thus. Unbound. The main title page indicates 1675, however the title pages for later sections of this book show 1674. Pp 598 + advertisement and addenda/corrigenda, hundreds of coats of arms, modern red cloth, about 3 1.4 X 5 3/4 inches. The advertisement indicates that this revised edition now includes "the Seals of the Archbishops, and Bishops Sees; also the Paternal Coat-Armour of all the Nobility throughout the whole Book." Earlier editions have 554 or fewer pages. This copy includes 2 pages of hand-written notes on the geneaology of the Ferrers dating from 1090 to 1787, with 6 coats of arms drawn in ink, inscribed on blank preliminary leaves. A few of the illustrations in the text have been carefully hand-coloured. Also, there are some early inked notes added further information to the section on Kings, updating into the 18th century. Good complete text, untrimmed, prelims present, very little wear or tears to leaves. The text is splitting at pp. 314-315, so requires repair or rebinding. Certainly a good candidate. Fair.
