Corbet Anderson, J. Antiquities of Croydon Church, Destroyed by Fire, January 5th, 1867.

Small 4to. (25.5x17.5cm), (iv) + 84 pages + 8 pages of adverts all of local Croydon businesses + 10 full page plates and many other illustrations within the text. A few spots of foxing, the brown endpapers a little faded. Bound in the original red cloth binding, the title etc. in gilt on the front cover. The cover somewhat marked, rubbed on the corners, the spine worn and frayed at the top and bottom, the cloth split on the front hinge for most of its length and the cloth on the rear hinge split for about 6cm. A fascinating piece of local history, illustrating and describing a medieval church lost forever.
