A Selection of Views in the County of Lincoln

£39.99

Product description

A reprint of Bartholomew Howlett’s beautifully illustrated book of Lincolnshire, originally published in 1805.

This rare book gives a fascinating insight into Lincolnshire in the late 1790s. Howlett collected a wide range of drawings of churches, great houses, landscapes and ruins by artists such as Espin, Girtin and Nattes and engraved them for publication in this impressive book.
The book is divided into the three parts of the county, Lindsey, Kesteven and Holland, 53 full page engravings are presented covering locations from Barton on Humber down to Crowland.

Each engraving is accompanied by a short historical or topographical account of the subject. In addition there are 25 delightful vignettes which cover a fascinating range of subjects from landscapes to antiquities. Howlett’s colour map “engraved in a novel and elegant manner” as the frontispiece has been included in the reprint. There is also a folder with the same cover as the book, containing 12 prints from the book, all suitable for framing. Although the glossy, pictorial dust jacket is a little bumped on corners and edges, this superbly illustrated book is otherwise in fine condition, as are the crisp, clear prints. A heavy book which requires courier delivery.
