  • Title:
    The first and second volumes of Chronicles.
  • Author: Raphael Holinshed, -1580?.
  • Publication Details: London : At the Expenses of J. Harison, G. Bishop, R. Newberie, H. Denham, and T. Woodcocke, 1587.
  • Language: English
  • Identifier: System number: 001712134
  • Notes: Shortly after publication, pp. 421-24, 433-36, 443-50 of Vol. 2, and pp. 1328-31, 1419-1538 and 1551-74 of Vol. 3 were cancelled. To replace the last of these omissions new leaves were printed, paged 1419, 1420; 1421, 1490: 1491, 1536: 1537, 1538; 1551, 1552; 1553, 1554: 1555, 1574. Between the years 1723 and 1728 three reprints of the excised sections were put on the book market, by purchasing which owners could complete their mutilated copies. The first advertised reprint of 1723 was published by Gyles and Woodman and edited by John Blackburn; its publication was forestalled by an edition sold by Bateman and Cowse; the third is thought to have been edited by Dr. Drake in 1728. The original title of Vol. 3 is said to have been “The Chronicles of England from Will. the Conqueror.” In all the British Library copies this has been replaced by one reading: “The Third Volume of Chronicles, &c.” as above. In this copy the leaves named above have been excised and replaced by copies of the Bateman & Cowse reprint.
    Imperfect: vol. 3 wants all before p. 17 and the last six leaves of index which are replaced by eighteenth century reprints. The title to this volume is a reconstruction.
