|Memorials of Barnstaple - Joseph Besley Gribble|
Condition Good Plus
Published by J.Avery, Barnstaple
First edition, first issue, March 1830
Being an attempt to supply the want of a history of the ancient Borough.
194pp, two plates, one being a plan of the town and a folding chart.
In a prefatory apology the author outlines reasons for delay in publishing, but was obviously under pressure to do so and made this issue in March 1830 and thereby created an anomaly. The November 1830 issue of over 600pp is generally accepted as the first edition.
Scarce and unusual.
