CHAMBERLAYNE, Edward

Regular price $300.00 Sale

Edward Chamberlayne (1616 1703) was best known for this book, a handbook to the social and political condition of England, with lists of public officers and statistics. An extremely popular book, its twentieth edition was printed in 1702, and after Edward`s death his son John continued to edit the publication. The twenty-first edition (1708) bears the new title Magn Britanni Notitia, or the Present State of Great Britain. John Chamberlayne died after the issue of the twenty-second edition in 1723, but another fourteen editions were issued by booksellers, the last being the thirty-sixth in 1755.
