Nottingham Date Book (1884)

£ 14.56

Free P&P!

The Nottingham Date Book has fascinated me since I discovered a copy at the Nottinghamshire Archives. It is a book of the history of Nottingham from 850 to 1884. In particular, after about 1750, it is full of references to every-day happenings in the town and its people. Not just important people, but normal people too. Its fascination for me is not only because I was born in Nottingham and interested in its history, but also as a family historian, as it contains so many references to people and every-day events. It is a particularly rare book, and even more so in its complete edition up to 1884. Until now, one had to try to find a copy of the original book (a near impossible task) in order to read it.
