a book of sepia photo's. & drawings(on the front, rear & inside of covers) of the countryside around Hitchin in times gone by. "Revolving about Hitchin, and justifying its title as a country-town, there is a constellation of hamlets and villages, with their churches, manor houses, farmsteads, cottages, commons, coppices and streams not greatly altered in appearance since the days of the Wars of the Roses. They should be happy to belong to Hitchin, for right back to the time whereof the memory of man runneth not to the contrary, they have been governed and protected by the tithing men, stewards, reeves, high­constables and Justices-of-the-Peace of the Half Hundred of Hitchin. Moreover when as yet they had no religious houses of their own, they were served by priests from the Monasterium or mother-church of Hitchin. And throughout the centuries, in many-horsed and gaily-caparisoned wagons, piled high with the produce of broad and bountiful acres, their husbandmen have gone lumbering down the deep-rutted and twisty lanes, sure of finding a fair price for their wheat, barley and oats in the Hitchin Tuesday market." unpaginated.
