Let a, b, c ∈ ℝ2, ai < ci < bi, i ∈ {1, 2}, [a, b]:=[a1, b1]×[a2, b2], let (\mathbb{B},|\cdot |) be a (real or complex) Banach space, K\in C([a,b]\times [a,c]\times \mathbb{B},\mathbb{B}), H\in C([a,b]\times [a,b]\times \mathbb{B},\mathbb{B}) and g\in C([a,b],\mathbb{B}). In this paper we study the following integral equation

u(x)=\int\limits_{[a,c]}K(x,s,u(s))ds +\int\limits_{[a,x]}H(x,s,u(s))ds +g(x),\ x=(x_1,x_2)\in [a,b].

Using the Fibre Contraction Principle we give existence and uniqueness results, and we prove the convergence of the successive approximations. By the weakly Picard operator theory (in the framework of the ordered Banach space \mathbb{B}) we give Gronwall lemma type results and comparison theorems. Some other similar type of Fredholm-Volterra integral equations are also studied.

Keywords: Fredholm-Volterra integral equation, Existence and uniqueness, Successive approximations, Integral inequality, Gronwall lemma, Comparison lemma, Fibre contraction principle
