What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

The first edition. This work was produced and dedicated to the president and members of the Berkshire Archaeological and Architectural Society. To the introduction, Morley writes that 'I have endeavoured to give a complete list of the Monumental Brasses, laid down previous to the 18th Century, and which now remain in the Royal County of Berkshire'. The foreword, written by Rev P H Ditchfield, notes that 'the author is to be congratulated in having accomplished a task that is no light one'. Monumental brass is a form of engraved sepulchral memorial which began to be a more popular form in the early 13th century. With the errata slip tipped in, as called for. With a tipped in frontispiece and numerous in-text illustrations. An interesting historical look at brasses.

Condition

In a publisher's original cloth binding. Externally, in an excellent condition with just some minor shelfwear to the head and tail of spine. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright with scattered spots to the first and last few pages, otherwise just the odd spots.
