Hardback, probably printer's boards. 47x30 cm (elephant folio) Boards covered with very worn paper covers bumps to all corners. Signs of removal of original spine, replaced with modern cloth, sound but amateurishly finished. Page edges dust- stained, internally very clean except for occasional random spotting and a possible water stain to the back cover only of Vol.1. An outstanding County history. A plan for the history which he sketched out in 1804 showed he meant it to appeal mainly to antiquaries.
