Worcestershire - Cox's Magna Britannia 1721 with Morden map


Cat No.:   GB0140:

What can we say? Almost three hundred years old, this book, written by Cox was published in 1721 describing the history of the county and its people from earliest times, and has descriptions and history of each of the places in the county.

Superb scanned images of the original pages, which, although they are in the old type style of the period, are very readable, and most certainly fascinating. Superb early background information about the county for historians and genealogists. Unusually, the book still has its original map (1695) by Robert Morden, a collectors piece in its own right.

The book arrived here from a book dealer in a very sad state, and therefore we had it professionally rebound and re-covered in a traditional style of the period, in half leather, with raised bands on the spine, an inset maroon title bar with real gold leaf lettering, and lovely hand made mottled paper covered boards. Perfect in every respect.

This exceptionally rare book can now be seen by anyone.
