Description

Book containing forty colour plates, each depicting an aspect of Yorkshire life in 1814, accompanied by a page or more of explanatory text. A wide range of economic and social topics is covered, and because of topic matter and date, the book is indispensible for an understanding of the industrilization occurring at the beginning of the nineteenth century.

Paper pages bound in heavy tooled leather with a gilt border. Explanations are written in both English and French. It is a folio size volume.
