Author: [Uttoxeter] Redfern, Francis:

Title: History and Antiquities of the Town and Neighbourhood of Uttoxeter, with Notices of Adjoining Places. [...] Second Edition.

Publication: Hanley: Allbut & Daniel 1886.

Description: 8vo., pp. [xii] [1]-465 [iii] + 4 full-page engravings not included in pagination. Pages age-toned, a few spots, one or two leaves showing slight chipping at edges. Original brown cloth, black-stamped border to upper board, gilt to spine, joints and head- and tail-caps neatly renewed, corners worn, a few blemishes and scuffs. Ownership inscription of H. Foulkes, "Hardwick", Uttoxeter, to upper pastedown.

Although Gross dismisses this work as "of little value for municipal history" (due to the narrow remit of his bibliography), it contains much material of interest to the antiquary and more broad-minded local historian.
