. [30] + 1-154; plate of seals of mitred abbeys; 155-171; remainder (3rd book onwards) renumbered in pen long ago; however by comparison with library records of Wing F2417, and the EEBO Text Creation Project transcription of the first printing, original numbering appears likely to be roughly as follows, give or take the odd single misnumbered page: [9], double page plate of seals of knights joined with monks of Ely by William the Conqueror; 1-119; [7]; 129-176; 2 plates of Lichfield Cathedral; 177-200; 152, 154-156; [6]; 163-191; 190; 193-255; [4]; 260-371; [3]; 375-377; [1]; 371-375, 384-427; [9], 1-235; [9]; 1-25, 28, 27-114; [2]; 115, 115, [2], 117-119, 108-109, 122-150, 152, 152, 143, 154-180, 182, 182-238. Despite the confusing and obliterated pagination, it appears that the text of this book is complete, though I have not ascertained whether further illustration plates were called for in this printing beyond the 4/5 (including 1 double page) which I have noted here. There are other occasional corrections or annotations in very old handwriting and spelling, likely by the same person who attempted to renumber the pages. Professionally and sturdily rebound in recent years in a lovely green half leather with gilt bands and black leather title label. Paper in nice condition. 14 x 9¼ x 2¼ inches.
