Many illustrations, plans etc, (some coloured) including a large fold out plan which is a tracing of ‘Norman drawings of the Priory of Christ-Church Canterbury, with its system of waterworks made ca 1165 and subsequently inserted into the Great Psalter of Eadwin’. Dark blue blind-stamped cloth-covered boards, gilt decoration and titles. Condition: Externally, boards very knocked and rubbed. Binding firm, contents clean and intact, although the plan mentioned above has been reinforced. Rather untidily-trimmed page edges are inevitably soiled. Bookplate of Henry J. Burford Hancock to front paste down.
