1 The Buckinghamshire Domesday [The County Edition of Great Domesday Book, 3 Volumes, Limited Edition]
Alecto Historical Editions London 1988 0948459565 / 9780948459566 Limited Edition Hardcover Good Slipcase Poor Book Elephant Folio - over 15 - 23" tall 
3 volume set, limited to 1,000 copies. The Folios and Maps volume is hand-numbered, no. 214. Maps present and in very good condition in the front pocket of Folios and Maps. The other volumes are Introduction and Translation, and Domesday Book Studies. All three volumes are bumped at the base of the spine and the Introduction and Translation volume has two little red pen squiggles on a page towards the back of the book. If not for the pen marks I would describe the volumes as Very Good condition. The slipcase is poor, missing one end of the case. These are very LARGE AND HEAVY - overseas postage is likely to be prohibitively expensive. A postage surcharge will apply to all delivery destinations outside the UK mainland as the set will cost significantly more to send than our standard postage rate will cover. A surcharge will also apply for posting to UK islands, highlands and Northern Ireland; significant surcharge for delivery overseas - all destinations; NO additional charges for sending within the UK mainland. A discount is available for collection from our shop premises - please enquire. 304995
