In 1610, Thomas Milles, nephew of noted herald Robert Glover, published an English translation of the latter's royal genealogy, entitled Catalogue of Honor, running more than 1000 pages. Is anyone aware of a copy of this work viewable online?
Google Books has an entry for it, but has it completely blocked, which obviously has absolutely nothing to do with copyright.
Cold comfort, but the Latin treatise by Glover translated as preface to
the book is available here:
When they get round to digitising it, the Bodleian library's copy will
have some extra interest - on the title page is noted by hand:
"Examined, and the Printers Errors and Translators mistakinges in sondry
Places corrected by William Camden ... and Tho. Milles ... the Publisher
Wasn't the Bodleian a Google partner? If so, maybe they too are
constrained by the honour among thieves that absurdly leads Google to
block out-of-copyright books which have been reprinted in facsimile.
But in this case no such edition appears to have been issued, at any
rate recently, so maybe its absence from view is just laziness on the
part of several partner libraries holding copies. My local state library
has one, that I have never looked at, but it is inaccessible at present
due to Covid 19.
