Old Lincolnshire - A Pictorial Quarterly Magazine


Cat No.:   GB1140:

Edited by George H Burton and published by the Old Lincolnshire Press Stamford.

This short-lived periodical ran only from 1883-5, so this bound copy is the complete run. The binding is loose, but it is complete and well worth rebinding. It has 13 illustrations, which are actual photographic prints and so have stained the facing page with a negative impression. These include views of churches, the timber roadway at Brigg, and Roman urns found around Lincoln.

There are book reviews and articles, a series of sections on Lincolnshire freeholders in 1561, many transcripts of ancient documents, and articles about local dignitaries, such as Sir Joseph Banks by Henry Winn, and William Logsdail, local painter, etc.

Most of the copies of this periodical are in captivity [libraries] and it is rare to see one in the wild. A great chance to acquire a CD copy of a unique publication.
