John Rastell was a 15th-century English author most known for his work ‘Pastime of the People’. First appearing in 1529, this work is a chronicle of the people of England from the earliest known times through the right of Richard III. Notable contents include biographies of Richard I, William Rufus, and King John, as well as histories of other kingdoms including Rome, Flemish, Norman, and French histories. Rastell also includes a thorough description of the Papacy.

 

According to Lowndes, this is one of only 500 known printed copies! Very rare! This edition, edited by Dibdin, was the first reprinted edition and systematically arranged with facsimile woodcuts. The 18 woodcuts are some of the most impressive full-page, folio woodcuts you will ever see in a 19th-century printing.
