What Our Customers Say...
Folding Maps, Leather Binding, Uncommon
A two volume set in a full calf binding, with decorative gilt to the spine and renewed end papers. Uncommon in a two volume set. Bookplate to the front paste downs. 2 folding maps to Volume I. One of the folding maps, of the 'Vale of Pickering' has been mistakenly tipped in from a different volume. William Marshall (1845-1818) published six studies on the farming practices of different regions of England from 1788 to 1798, which remain important historical resources on English agriculture. This is the instalment on the agricultural practices of Norfolk, with a particular focus on the management of estates and animal husbandry. Volume I includes information on the cultivation of crops; hiring of staff; animal husbandry; and farming implements and buildings of this county. Volume II continues this study with minutes on agriculture and planting from 1780 to 1782 and an index.
In a full calf binding, with renewed end papers. Externally very smart, with just a little rubbing to the extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are generally bright and clean, with the occasional offsetting, particularly to the first folding map of Vol I, and the odd scattering of spots. Small closed tear to the first folding map of Vol I. The other folding map is in excellent condition.
