Seller ID 55149
In green cloth covers with gilt to spine. With illustrated dustwrapper. 160pp. In very good condition with good dustwrapper (dw; top edge slightly creased. Price clipped). A clean and tight copy. The sources available for studying the history of towns and cities are both extensive and diverse. Stephen Porter here presents a guide to where the relevant primary source materials and secondary works are mostly readily available, how to interpret them once found and how far to accept the evidence they produce. The period covered stretches from the Tudors to the early 20th century, during which time there were significant changes in both the scale of towns and the recording of information.
