By: [Armstrong, Mostyn John] ?

Price: £250.00

Publisher: Norwich, Stevenson and Matchett no date [1781]: 1781

Book number: 48810

Condition: Very Good


Frontis, title page, 197 pp. The frontispiece, title and final leaf have been laid down, and the title page has been repaired with virtually no loss. c20th brown calf with black morocco title label and marbled boards and endpapers. Quite likely by Armstrong, and part of his 'history and antiquities of the county of Norfolk' project, given that Stevenson and Matchett published a number of volumes in Norwich for that series. The only seperate copy I can find is in the Harvard Library. They give a date, but no author. In any case, this is a rare item. View more info
