5 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. This set is VERY LARGE AND HEAVY - a significant surcharge will apply to international orders as this set will cost a great deal more to send than our standard rate will cover. Shipping to some destinations may not be available - please enquire before ordering. NO additional charges for sending within the UK mainland. UK highlands, islands and N. Ireland will incur an additional charge. A discount on postage is available for collection from our North Oxfordshire shop premises. 304995
