What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Illustrated, Leather Binding

Beautifully bound. 

With four plates total, and numerous in-text illustrations of arms. The arms remain uncoloured to this copy. 

With the topography of William Wyrcestre and The Life of William Canyges. 

Written by James Dallaway, an English antiquary, topographer, and miscellaneous writer. Dallaway also printed county histories including one on the western parts of Sussex.  He had previously printed a separate publication on the itinerary of William Worcester, who chronicled the architecture of Bristol. His survey became a valuable resource to historians and antiquaries.
