[BEER, Johann Christopher] Das Neu-Geharnischte Groß-Britannien[BEER, Johann Christopher] Das Neu-Geharnischte Groß-Britannien, Das ist: Wahre Landes- und Standes-Beschaffenheit Derer drey-vereinigten Königreiche Engel- Schott- und Irrlands : Jn völliger Beschreibung ihrer Provintzen, Jnsuln, Städte, Schlösser, Festungen, Früchten, Reichthümer und Regiments-Form, Wie nicht weniger der leßwürdigsten Staats- und Kriegs-Geschichten; Bevorab Jhrer neulichsten großwichtigsten Handlungen, absonderlich aber derer bey unlängster Versetzung der Cron von Jacobo II. Auf den jüngst-inthronisirten und gekrönten König Wilhelmum III. / Mit einer warhafften unpartheyischen Feder curiosen Gemütern grundrichtig vorgestellt, Darzu mit wahren Contrefaiten, Landkarten und Abrissen der fürnehmsten Städte und andern hierzu füglichen Kupffer-Bildern. 136 Nürnberg: In Verlegund Johannes Andreae Endters, 1690. Quarto. pp. [viii], 1094, [18], 61 (plates). Early twentieth-century black pebbled leather, spine gilt-stamped. Marbled endpapers. Cockled and lightly browned, some tear to plates at folds; occasional chipping in the margins, with early paper repairs to two plates, one of which suffers loss of letters but not of sense. Minute traces of old worm holes in outer margins. Faint stamp of an old library. Upper joints starting but firm. A good copy.

"This German-language history of the British Isles is copiously illustrated with three fold-out maps showing the three kingdoms of England, Ireland, and Scotland; 22 plates showing plans of cities, including one fine fold-out plate with a plan of London; 14 plates showing costuming, regalia, and major events, including a fold-out plate with the coronation of William and Mary; 21 portraits of major figures; and one showing a fleet off the south coast of England - probably the same that brought William of Orange from the Netherlands in 1688. In the frontispiece, an allegorical figure of Britain thrusts aside James II and leads William of Orange forward, Mary Stuart standing in the background.
This is printed in 'fraktur' with shouldernotes, foreign words being printed in Roman. Johann Christopher Beer (1638-1712) also wrote a number of other histories in European countries." BEER, Johann Christopher.
