[Cromwell, Thomas Kitson: (Hawkesworth; Gatineau et al, illus.:] Excursions in the County of Kent: comprising brief historical and topographical delineations; together with descriptions of the residences of the nobility and gentry, remains of antiquity, and other interesting objects of curiosity. Forming a complete guide for the traveller & touris London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown; J. Greig, Back Road, Islington; and P. Yo 1822. 8vo., pp. [iv], 192 + 50 plates, including folding map frontispiece and additional engraved title-page. Occasional very light spots of foxing, last few leaves a little toned. 20th-century deep red straight-grain morocco, raised bands, gilt spine with gilt border and frame to each board, top edge gilt and other edges uncut, purple endpapers. Very faint rubbing at head and tail of each joint, a very good copy handsomely bound. Some pencilled collector's or perhaps bookseller's notes to ffep verso. The additional engraved title-page states 'Vol. 1', but no more were issued (Cromwell writes in his Preface that 'the projected length of each of these volumes has been diminished one half'). Originally issued in numbers in the author's series Excursions through England and Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The title-page states that the book is 'illustrated with fifty engravings', and indeed it is. However two of the plates (opposite p.160 and p.188) are engravings from Excursions from Ireland that don't belong in this volume at all. Having compared this copy with others online we cannot find any plates lacking in this volume and so would suggest that 48 plates was in fact the norm, and that at some point two stray plates have been added here in order to make up the numbers. Divided into three excursions, each giving interesting historical and contemporary facts about the towns and cities discussed. Includes areas now thought of as South London, including Deptford and Greenwich.   Ref: 52385
