The Early History of the North Riding

£9.99

Product description

Written by the Head Master of Middlesbrough High School at the time of publication (1924), this book is very much of its time in that the author's moral judgements colour his writing. It covers the period from Prehistoric times to the Middle Ages with sections on Castles, Religious Houses and Family Trees.
Bound in rich gingery-brown with embossed gilt lettering, aside from slightly bumped corners and edges, the book is in very good condition. Uncut pages add a distinct period charm, all text is clear, the numerous b/w line engravings and photographic plates enhance the informative text and there is a delightful sepia frontispiece of Rievaulx Abbey. At the end of the book there is a pristine fold-out map of the North Riding.
A heavy book which necessitates courier delivery.
