England's Monarchs: or, a compendious relation of the . reigns of the Kings and Queens of England . (with rare James II image)
D.B. (Nathaniel Vrouch), London 1687 - Book. Leather bound 12 octavo booklet. This copy contains the very rare frontispiece which is usually missing (missing in BL copy for example) because readers of the time would have removed it for political reasons and/or eighteenth-century engraving collectors would have clipped it for their collections. Top left corner missing from the image, closed tear to bottom. Graffiti (handwriting practice) throughout publication from the period, general wear and age throughout. Some loose pages, missing colophon but this can be dated as 1687 (third edition) the next edition would not have the James II image because of the revolution. Other images of Kings and Queens throughout from William to the Edwards and Henrys, Charles I & II, Elizabeth etc. The image of James I on p205 missing lower half. Other condition notes - pp72-95 missing. Very good with some pages missing but including rare James II frontispiece. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
      [Bookseller: William Allen Word & Image]
