Ralph Brooke was a 16th-century English armorial officer best-remembered for his feud with William Camden. Camden published a history of England under the title ‘Britannia’ of which Brooke was highly critical. Brooke challenged many of the discoveries in Camden’s magnum opus and pointed out his errors, particularly those dealing with the British royals and noble lineages. It also includes context on English antiquarian John Leland, who has since been thought of as one of the most important English historians.

 

This fine 1723 edition includes Camden’s response to Brooke and was the first edition printed since 1600. A very rare work indeed.
