The Itinerary of England and Wales, by John Leland, Written chiefly about A.D. 1540-1545
This is the well-known but imperfect and ill-arranged manuscript of the valuable Itinerary of Leland, bound in eight volumes but in no reasonable order: with some notes and papers by William Burton, who possessed at least vol. 8 in 1598.

The contents are fully described in the Old Catalogue of 1697 as nos. 5107-5112*, 6615*, but the 8th volume did not actually reach the Library till presented anew by Charles King, M.A., in or soon after 1677, and vols. 4, 6, and 7 came by Burton's gift rather later than the rest (1642-3, etc.).
