Hissey, James John

On Southern English Roads

Published: Richard Bentley & Son, London

Date: 1896

First edition, xv + 423pp. uncut, 16 illustrations and a fold-out plan of the route, blue cloth covers, illustration & titles in gilt. Internally very good, just two previous owner's inscriptions on the front endpapers. Frontispiece tissue guard browned, endpapers lightly browned. Covers good on the whole but they are a bit mottled / faded and the spine covering has split down the left side and there is a touch of loss to the top. This follows James Hissey's journey through southern counties locations such as Winchester, Dorchester, Southampton, Lewes, Eastbourne, Tunbridge Wells and Petersfield. A detailed and richly illustrated topographical account.
