Bibliographic Notes Work is excerpted from the author's larger work "A topographical description of Cumberland, Westmoreland, Lancashire, and a Part of the West Riding of Yorkshire" (1800). Our copy: writing in pencil on inside front cover "£85.00 / 1806". Nine stamp-sized illustrations are pasted into the book.
