This form will search our rare books only. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

If you enter two or more words in this box, the search will look for both words, but not necessarily in the order you enter. Don't worry about upper and lower case. The search ignores words of less than three letters, such as initials like the "H" and "G" in "H. G. Wells".

To look for part of a word, use the wildcard * - for example, lon* will find "London" and "Longfellow". If you want to exclude a word from your search, put a minus sign in front of it: -pirates bucc* will find buccaneers, but not pirates.


This form will search our rare books only. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

You can make a very specific search using this form: keep your search broad enough to find what you are looking for! If you enter two or more words in the Author, Title, Publisher or Keywords fields we'll look for all of them, though not necessarily in the order you enter them.

Where a book has more than one ISBN we use the British ISBN; and we also tend to use the 10-digit ISBN instead of the 13-digit one.

An Historical Account of Those Parishes in the County of Middlesex Which Are Not Described in the Environs of London

T Cadell Jun and W Davies in the Strand, London
Heavy 4to. in quarter red leather with red buckram boards, viii + 316pp, 17 plates all present and this book is collated complete.
An ex-reference library copy, hinges parting but still holding comfortably, library cancels to front end-papers and verso of title-page which also has perforated library name at bottom margin. All of the plates have a very small name stamp on the verso which has been carefully done and does not show through. All four foldout plates have been professionally and very nicely linen backed. One plate has an approx 5mm sliver of loss to the outer fore-margin but still leaves plenty of room (approx 15mm) between it and the plate border. All leaves are just a little tanned, all the plates are moderately tanned and foxed. Overall a GOOD copy
