Notes This later edition (than at Book ID 2544) is in the same volume as Estienne Perlin, Description des royaulmes d'Angleterre et d'Ecosse (Paris: Francois Trepeau; 1558). The publication of the two works was intended, according to the preface, to give the public some idea of what their French neighbours thought of the British in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
