Book Description

[20pp] prelims, 248pp, 2 folding maps ('A Mapp of 20 miles round Leedes' and 'The Navigable Course of the River Are from Leedes to the Humber & German Ocean'), 2 folding plates ('The South Profpect of St Peters Church at Leedes' and a side view of the Church), 1 plate (Archbishop Thoresby), leather boards with blind stamped decoration, spine with seven raised bands and title label. The contents are in very good condition, with some strengthening to the hinges and some tape to the verso of the 'Mapp' and the 'Prospekt'. There is a former owner's name to the front paste down. The covers are quite worn, particularly at the corners, and the spine label has some minor loss. Overall a very presentable copy of a rare work.
