What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Rebound, Very Scarce

Three very scarce works, bound together.

The first of these works is an 1818 first edition titled 'An Account of the Great Floods of the Rivers Tyne, Tees, Wear, Eden, &c. in 1771 and 1815', by William Garret. Including an account of the eruption of soilway moss.

With the title page present in facsimile.

The second work is a very scarce 1820 facsimile of a 1645 narrative of 'That Famous and Renowned Siege of Newcastle [...] Together with a Succinct Commentarie upon The Battell of Bowden Hill, and that Victorious Battell of York or Marston Moore'.

This narrative is credited to William Lithgow.

The third and final work present is the very scarce 1818 French language work 'Des Chemins de fer en Angleterre, Notamment a Newcastle, dans le Northumberland' by M. de Gallois, describing the railways of England, with a focus on those of Newcastle and Northumberland.

Rebound in half cloth, with endpapers renewed.

Condition

Rebound in quarter cloth, with marbled paper covered boards. Endpapers renewed. Externally, fine. Internally, firmly bound. First title page in facsimile. Pages of first two works generally clean and bright, with pages of final work age toned due to paper type.
