This is a large and elaborate genealogical chart in the form of a tree, from Alpin of Scotland and Egbert of England to James i, and from Danish and German princes of the 11th cent. to queen Anne of Denmark, not unlike Colman's engraved chart of about A.D. 1608, but with many coloured coats of arms, etc.

The birth of the princess Mary in 1605 is added.
