Regretfully, due to Covid-19, we have decided to cancel all fairs from May to August. Keep checking our website for updates.  Unfortunately, we have also had to cancel our York National Book Fair in September.  More details on our Facebook page.
OUR NEXT ONLINE BOOK FAIR WILL BE ON 29TH MAY.
Book Description
This delightful work was doubtless conceived during the last days of the stagecoach. Although the railway was reaching a zenith of speculation at the time, this work was published in 1845, no inkling of modernity intrudes into the plates. The watercolourist Charles B. Newhouse (1805-1877) ingeniously illustrates the excitement of nineteenth century stagecoach travel through the English countryside, not sparing us with all sorts of accidents and mishaps.
