A History of 19th Century Brigg

£24.99

Product description

Frank Henthorne was History Master and Deputy Head of Brigg Grammar School. His acquaintance with Brigg spans 56 years and his book paints a vivid picture of the leading Victorian figures described as the 'Makers of Brigg'. Communications, the Church, education, houses, people, economic and social development, local government and leisure are all described. Includes a section of over 40 b/w photographs. This copy has added interest in that on the front free end paper is a notation in ink giving the circumstances of the purchase of the book by H S Waddington direct from the author, who has signed and dedicated the book, and appears to have written a pencil list of notes. H S Waddington has also written notes mentioning reviews of the book. Enclosed loosely is a newspaper cutting from Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph 24/9/87 reviewing the book, and a plan of Brigg published by Glanford Borough Council , with an ink date of Jul 1990. Attached to the foreword page is a typed slip of addenda and corrigenda. The owner has added these notes to the picture index and made an occasional note in the text. The stiff card binding has general marks and slight soiling, some light creases, and rubbing wear to corners and spine ends. Crease down spine. Text block edge has some light marks and dust-soiling. A book which will be of great interest to local historians.
