London : William Jaggard, 1610 A fair to good copy of this scarce work in contemporary binding with frontispiece, decorative title page, 8 further plates and numerous engravings. According to some recent research Thomas Milles 1550-1626 (said to be a spy for Queen Elizabeth I) was possibly the compiler of the work with text previously written by Robert Glover (1543-1588) who collected a large selection of coats of arms and changed the way that family trees were laid out. Famous for the contemporary text change at p493 said to be done to hide concerns about the Blount family tree. This copy has had the binding repaired to provide a new spine with raised bands and title label, and to repair the corners. New endpapers have been added.
