The Criers and Hawkers of London

£39.99

Product description

This hardcover book is in very good condition overall. The cover of the book is without major issue and includes the original dust jacket. There are some slight issues with jacket, which has some noticeable markings, as well as some very slight fraying along some edges. The book has two inscriptions just inside the front cover, both of which are written in pen. The pages of the book are in very good condition overall, and appear to be without issue overall.

'Fascination with the lives of pedlars and hawkers first expressed itself in English art around 1600. Marcellus Laroon's Cryes of the City of London drawne after the life was published in 1687 and became a best seller the day it appeared, remaining popular for nearly a century and a half... The present volume make Cryes available once again as a valuable document for scholars of popular British art, social history and costume studies; more so because of the inclusion of plates from the 1760 edition in which designs were updated to provide us with a unique comparison between 1687 and the late eighteenth century. The book also contains nineteen hitherto unpublished sketches by Laroon held at Blenheim Place.'
