Bradford Poor Law Union: Papers and Correspondence with the Poor Law Commission, October 1834 to January 1839

£12.99

Product description

The passage of the 1834 Poor Law Amendment Act created an immense archive of letters, reports and memos from the responsible bodies. The papers form part of the huge Ministry of Health archive held at the National Archives at Kew, where the lack of an effective index or list of contents hinders access to this key resource. Thus Paul Carter's transcription of the Bradford Poor Law Union correspondence is the first regional collection to have been fully transcribed, and from it can be seen the wealth of social and historical detail contained in the papers. The Bradford material contains the raw data for this highly detailed investigation into the changes from the 'old' to the 'new' poor law system in one of the fastest growing urban centres in England.

Condition: Dustjacket somewhat discoloured on front, slightly marked on back, slightly torn on spine. Rest of book very clean.
