“The best edition of Camden!”

 

A fine, early 17th-century printing of William Camden’s “Anglica, Normannica, Hibernica, Cambrica, a veteribus scripta.” This second edition is considered the best edition of this work (Payne & Foss) and is simply a work of historical texts related to the history of Britain. It includes famous battles and invasions, such as the William the Conqueror’s Norman invasion of Ireland. In the late 12th-century, Gerald of Wales wrote a history of Henry II conquest of Ireland. Camden created a modern approach to the histories of England, and in this Latin text, includes specimen of Old English which would be the “Preface to Gregory’s Pastoral Care, taken from Parker’s Asser.” (Adams, Old English Scholarship). This book was famously in Thomas Jefferson’s Library (Gilreath & Wilson).
