Memoirs of Dr Richard Gilpin, of Scaleby Castle in Cumberland

£45.00

Product description

The full title is Memoirs of Dr Richard Gilpin, of Scaleby Castle in Cumberland and of his posterity in the two succeeding generaltions: written in the year 1791 by the Rev W M Gilpin, Vicar of Boldre: together with an account of the author by himself and a pedigree of the Gilpin family.
A physician and nonconformist minister who was active in the north of England, Richard Gilpin (1625–1700) was a popular preacher, leading large congregations. This book is a story of his life and family. To it is added an autobiographical note by William Gilpin, a teacher and writer.

Quaritch hardback with no DJ. Published under the aegis of the Cumberland and Westmoreland d Antiquarian and Archaeological Society. Brown cloth covered boards with gilt lettering to front and spine. The spine cover is somewhat soiled. Moderate corner wear and to the top and bottom of the spine. There is a pouch inside the rear cover whose front paper (the end paper of the text) has two linear tears and the attachment of the lower edge is separated over 5 cm from the bellows of the pouch, The front hinge is sprung but still functional. Owner's name on ffep dated 1897. Generalised tanning of pages. There are two separate folded documents in the pouch. These have been crudely mended with cellotape and, in once case, what looks like stamp paper. These clearly, when opened, will display the genealogical tree with a coat of arms. However, spreading the pages out will necessarily cause damage - they are fragile as well as being roughly mended more than once. Rather than inflict mayhem this task is left to the purchaser - and I wish him luck!

Much reprinted in POD books this is the original and not all the other copies has the pedigree in the back pouch
