Abstract Aylett Sammes’ Britannia Antiqua Illustrata, a tall folio of some 6oo pages, aims to fill a gap by collecting all the then available information on early Britain. All relevant writers pass review, and the historical starting-point is Noah’s Flood. The first settlers must have been the Phoenicians, then come the Greeks, and at last the British, the Romans and, on p. 350, the Saxons. The history of the Saxon kings begins on p. 389 and concludes the book. Its historical value today is nil, but even so it has its interests, which include a fascinating set of illustrations.
