Historic Architecture Of Newcastle Upon Tyne

£24.99

Product description

This book records the historic architecture of Newcastle Upon Tyne, from the first Roman settlement, through the stormy middle ages, the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the prosperous Victorian era of Grainger and Dobson and on to the twentieth century. By careful selection and arrangement of its many photographs the book provides a remarkable visual experience and shows the development of this great city.

First published in 1967 and reprinted in the same year, this hardback book is an extraordinary historical and photographic record of the buildings of Newcastle Upon Tyne. Some of the buildings have since been destroyed or heavily remodelled, other streets and squares are recognisable today. It is complete with a price-clipped dustjacket which is torn, scratched and very rubbed along all edges and corners. The book is bound in cream cloth with gilt stamping on the spine. The cloth is yellowing on the spine ends and is slightly grubby. The corners are also bumped. There is a small ink inscription on the blue endpapers, which are fading, and there is some foxing along the top edge of the page block.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
