Dealer Notes
The first edition of this lavishly illustrated history of Suffolk by the clergyman and antiquary Alfred Suckling (1796–1856). These two volumes were intended as the start of a longer work, the remaining part of which was never published. Vol. I deals with the hundreds of Wangford, Mutford and Lothingland; vol. II includes the second part devoted to Lothingland and the hundred of Blything. The lithographed illustrations portray statues, ruins, buildings and monuments, whilst the text is interspersed with historical narratives and genealogical notes and diagrams pertaining to local families. A masterful, though regrettably unfinished, monument to the history of Suffolk.
