Bound in old (early 19th century?) mottled calf, rebacked, spine with raised bands, red label, gilt ornament. Green endpapers. Rubbing to the front joint, modest wear to outer corners; in all VG or better externally, internally fine and fresh, tight in the binding. This is volume 2 only (of 3) of Holinshed's Chronicles of England, Ireland, and Scotland, previously published in 1577 in a two volume format. See ESTC S122178. This revised second edition is the one Shakespeare used for most of his history plays, the plot of Macbeth, and for portions of King Lear and Cymbeline. "The Scottish section is largely a translation of Hector Boece's Scotorum Historiae. A second edition was issued in 1587, but it contained some passages that were considered offensive to the Queen and her ministers. The pages in question were removed by order of the Privy Council. The missing passages were separately published in 1723, and a complete reprint appeared in 1807." - Wikipedia. 3 kg parcel
