Zweite Ausgabe (zuerst 1586). - Carlander II, 42ff. - Vgl. PMM 101. - Camden war Professor in Oxford und an der Westminster School. 1577 lernte er den Kartographen Abraham Ortelius kennen, der ihn ermutigte, eine Darstellung der britischen Inseln zu schreiben, die 1586 erstmals erschien. "Britannia is a county-by-county description of Great Britain and Ireland. It is a work of chorography: a study that relates landscape, geography, antiquarianism, and history. Rather than write a history, Camden wanted to describe in detail the Great Britain of the present, and to show how the traces of the past could be discerned in the existing landscape. By this method, he produced the first coherent picture of Roman Britain. Britannia was recognised as an important work of Renaissance scholarship, not only in England, but across the European `Republic of Letters`." - "The great Elizabethan topographical-historical description of England consumed ten years` travel, study and effort. Camden had to learn Welsh and Anglo-Saxon in order to read both native and other historians, many still in manuscript, and to carefully peruse the public records." - Leicht gebräunt. Innendeckel mit Exlibris. Titel mit Namenszug Wm. Henderson.
