What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Folding Maps, Illustrated, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, Scarce

First edition. Scarce. Illustrated with a frontispiece, two folding maps, and over fifty woodcuts in-text. Collated complete. A charming handbook for the stranger on his first visit to Newcastle, to provide an idea of the extent and importance of the town and county. Includes general facts, a brief history, ancient churches, social aspects, public institutions, famous persons, industries, and much more. Written by The Reverend John Collingwood Bruce, an English nonconformist minister, schoolmaster, and author known as a historian of Tyneside.

Condition

In the original brown cloth binding. Externally, smart with rubbing and light bumping to the extremities. Minor fading to the spine and the odd mark to the boards. Small splits in the cloth to the head and tail of the spine as well as the joints. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright with the odd small spot and minor age toning to the endpapers.

Very Good
