SECOND EDITION, second issue of vol.I with 'yeres' reading on cancel title. Most copies lack the account of the Cadiz expedition, which was suppressed (along with the first issue of the title of vol.I) by order of Queen Elizabeth after the disgrace of the Earl of Essex in 1599. The Molyneux-Wright world map (here supplied in later collotype facsimile) was intended as an accompaniment to vol.III but was issued with only a handful of copies and is thus usually lacking (cf.Shirley 221).
