Robert Thoroton
Robert Thoroton, The Antiquities of Nottinghamshire, 1677, 1st edition
London: Henry Mortlock, 1677. A beautiful original example of this first edition, superb patina and almost certainly the best currently available for sale anywhere and at under 50% of the cost of some inferior copies advertised on the internet. You can Google 'Robert Thoroton, Antiquities of Nottinghamshire' to get the full details about the book and so I won't list them here. I bought this copy around 25 years ago at an auction at a fine art sale at Neales of Nottingham (formerly on Mansfield Road but no longer in existence). It could well have been in the Nottingham area since first published in 1677, during the reign of Charles II. The contents of this copy are in excellent condition and I suspect have never been read as all of the pages and plates are fresh, free from stains, repairs or any other damage. There is the odd very tiny occasional rust spot but this doesn't affect more than one letter in any single place. The spine was replaced shortly after I bought the book as it was badly cracked; a professional bookbinder (name available to the buyer) carried out the restoration and retained as much as possible of the original boards. Any more information or images required, please contact me. [Attributes: First Edition]
