8vo (5 x 8). pp.[24],160,169-184,177-432 + 17 hand-colored pull-out maps. Collated and complete*. Seventeenth edition. Bound in full modern calf after the original decorated binding. Includes head and tail pieces and ornamental initials, in addition to the bright, hand colored pull out maps. Note the odd pagination which also appears in the 14th edition (1735). A striking and bright copy of this extremely popular work first published in 1693 for the children of English gentry, includes neat, contemporary marginalia on pp.13 -14 and 43.

The importance of this work is in its early descriptions of the English colonies and its map of North America, showing California as an island separated from the mainland by the "Red Sea" and described in the text as a "dry, barren and cold country". ESTC:N1378; Russell 1234. *Collated against the University of Alberta (Hathi Trust) copy.
