Description:Books for Shakespeare’s library use.

Large folio volumes such as this were frequently kept in college libraries, or libraries in great houses, often chained to the reading desks. Although the original metal bosses and traces of closing clasps survive on this volume the replacement spine cover has destroyed any signs that the volume was ever chained.

Full title: Raphael Holinshed, The first and second volumes of chronicles[The thirde volume, etc.]... Now newlie augmented and continued... to the yeare 1586 by Iohn Hooker alias Vowell Gent. and others... [London] at the expenses of Iohn Harison, George Bishop, Rafe Newberie, Henrie Denham and Thomas Woodcocke, 1587.
