Francis Drake, 1736
Eboracum: history of York - original antique book by Francis Drake, 1736
1736. An original copy of Francis Drake's Eboracum or the History and Antiquities of the City of York. Published in 1736 by W.Bowyer, the book, which is folio sized (370x250mm), is bound in contemporary calf and is in very good condition. It includes 60 engraved plates of features of historic and architectural interest in York and the surrounding. There are three engraved maps: a plan of the city of York; a map of Roman roads in Yorkshire; and a map of the Ainsty region. There appears to be some splitting along the centrefold of the city plan and there is no frontispeice portrait of Francis Drake.
