Corbett, James:  
A History of St Albans

Publisher: Chichester, Pillimore & Co., 1997. (1st Edition).
xiii + 162pp with 120 b/w illus. Signed in ink by the author on the title page "James Corbett". "St Albans is among the oldest of English cities. Since its origins, more than two thousand years ago, which pre-date the Roman Verulamium, it has enjoyed a rich and continuous history, which recent discoveries and researches have made considerably richer, vividly revealed in the up-to-date and generously illustrated account of the city's development from earliest times to the present day. About much more than bricks and mortar, it is primarily about the people whose lives and labours have created through the centuries, the community of St Albans in all its social, civic, economic, artistic, political and devotional variety.....This is an important book, it looks afresh at the evidence : the archaeology, the archives, and the oral traditions of a proud and ancient city in a scholarly yet highly readable narrative." Despite the recent printing date this book is becoming increasingly uncommon. Very good cond : very good cond d/w. 10 x 7 1/4 inches

Ford, Theresa : Birch, Karen (editors):  
Bath, The Golden Years, from the archives of The Bath Chronicle.

Publisher: Tiverton, Halsgrove Ltd., 2003 (1st Edition).
160pp illustrated throughout with b/w archive photographs. "Elegant Bath has a history stretching back over two thousand years. But in many ways the last half-century has been one of the most interesting in its existence. Damage done to the city in wartime Baedeker raids and unsympathetic post-war development radically altered the townscape. Yet perhaps change has been most keenly felt in the lives of its citizens - through the respectful '50s, swinging '60s, sordid 70s, and entrepeneurial '80s. Authors Theresa Ford and Keren Birch have drawn on the unrivalled collection of 'The Bath Chronicle' to portray familiar faces, the city at play, the city at work, the festivals, royal visitors, sports and -needless to say - the extremes of weather that together made up the remarkable kaleidoscope that was bath in the late twentieth century." Originally published at 19.95, now out of print and increasingly sought-after. Fine (new) cond : fine (new) cond d/w. 12 x 8 1/2 inches.

Publisher: Tiverton, Somerset Books Ltd., 2003 (1st Edition).
160pp with numerous b/w photo illus, extensive bibliography and index. "Somerset witnessed a remarkable variety of industries during the Industrial Revolution of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and beyond. Water and steam were the main providers of power in this 200 year period. There were mines for coal, lead, iron, zinc and copper, quarries for building stone, lime or aggregates, and clay pits for making bricks, tiles and pottery. Other activities included malting, brewing, cider making, corn milling and dairying ; the production of woollen textiles, silk, lace, canvas, twine, shirts, collars and gloves ; tanneries, shoemakers, foundries and engineering works. Water, gas and electricity supply were important too, and commerce was served by turnpike roads, canals, river navigations, railways and ports. This copiously illustrated book examines these and many other aspects of Somerset's history in the industrial period, while the archaeology illustrates how the physical remains of industry and a fascinating legacy of Somerset's past, whether in town or country."

Stanier, Peter:  
Dorset in the age of Steam : a history and archaeology of Dorset industry c.1750-1950

Publisher: Tiverton, Dorset Books Ltd., 2002 (1st Edition).
160pp with numerous b/w photo illus, extensive bibliography and index. "Rural Dorset hardly noticed the Industrial Revolution as it swept through England in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, yet the county has seen a fascinating variety of activities. The traditional industries were based on materials provided by the local geology and agriculture, such as quarrying for stone, clay and shale, the manufacture of lime, cement, bricks, pottery and tiles, or malting, brewing, corn milling, rope making and textiles. What made Dorset special? Portland stone was shipped worldwide, Wedgwood sought Purbeck's clay, Bridport nets and Poole pottery were renowned, while Dorchester beer was deemed the best and finest in England. There were silk mills and sailcloth factories, a remote foundry exported steam engines, and a quiet village saw the invention of machinery for brewers. Kimmeridge oil shale was destined to light the streets of Paris, and the Portland lighthouse was the first in England to be fitted with Argand lamps. In the field of transport, Dorset had a tramway nearly half-a-century before the Victorians brought railway contacts with the rest of England. Milestones, toll-houses and two tunnels of turnpike road improvements and there is even England's oldest postbox. A funnel from Brunel's 'Great Eastern' survives, the Portland breakwaters enclose the largest artificial harbour in the kingdom, and concerns of defence saw massive Victorian fortifications, a torpedo works and a major explosives factory from the earliest twentieth century. This copiously illustrated book examines these and many other aspects of Dorset's history in the industrial period, while archaeology illustrates how the physical remains of industry are a fasinating legacy of Dorset's past, whether in town or country."
