Medieval Southampton

£15.99

Product description

Medieval Southampton was written by Claire Clay, with 'Design and Illustration' by Richard Rayner, and published by The Curriculum Development Centre in Southampton in 1983. It provides an illustrated account of the development of Southampton from 700AD to 1600AD. Medieval Southampton is a stapled booklet consisting of eight sheets, including the card cover, folded in the middle to give the twenty-eight pages.

The front cover has a reproduction of the Landing of Philip of Spain at Southampton by Philip Brannon (1554), while the reverse has a photograph of the historic Below Bar part of the city (uncredited). On the inside of the cover, front and back, is a photographic detail of a timber and brick building. All of the cover designs are in shades of brown and white. The fore-corners of the cover are slightly bumped and the spine is a bit faded with a few creases (10mm).

The title page has the book title and details of the author, illustrator and publisher, as well as the list of contents. There is also a line drawing of medieval figures. From the contents, it is clear that the author has divided the text into sections based on eras in Southampton's growth, including 'Beginnings: 700AD to 1066AD', 'Norman conquest and Settlement: 1066-1200AD' and several others.

The spine is reasonably tight and all of the pages are in clean condition. Claire Clay's text is illustrated throughout with drawings, maps and photographs from a range of sources, including Southampton City Museums, Southampton City Archives and Bitterne Park School. Among the illustrations are line drawings of the Norman font in St. Michael's Church, the Bargate, the Tudor House and a baker enduring punishment. There is an engraving of St. Denys Priory ruins, a map of Southampton c.1500AD and numerous photographs. Most of the illustrations are acknowledged in a detailed list at the back of the booklet. There is also a bibliography.
