1860 All Round the Wrekin by Walter White. Chapman and Hall, London.

Sorry, this item has sold.

A handsome 1860 edition of Walter White's All Round the Wrekin. A fun work, describing rambling around England in the 19th century, by foot.

From the title page, "With unabated beauty the land of England blooms and grows...".

The topics covered seem wide-ranging, from the beauty of nature, to the vices of men (with a section titled "Street Lawlessness").
