Published in two volumes, with an exquisite county map, this is a fabulous and incredibly detailed study of Derbyshire as it was in 1789. All of the places have wonderful descriptions and important historical facts. Even the tiny hamlet of Marketon is described as having only twenty houses, ‘several have lately been taken down and the inhabitants removed to Mackworth’.
With over 950 pages in total, this really is one of the most comprehensive single county history and topography volumes that we have ever seen. There is no index but the text is incredibly clear, so we’ve used Optical Character Recognition software in order to make the CD searchable using Adobe Acrobat Reader.
High quality scanned images of the whole of the original books. This CD can be viewed by any computer using Adobe Acrobat Reader (version 4 or later recommended). The data on this CD is completely self-contained, and requires no installation.
