And farther demonstrated, by comparing the River Ouse, with the River Thomas, &c. and Lyn-Harbour, with the Harbour of Rye. With reflections upon all the schemes hitherto proposed for draining the fens, shewing wherein they are defective.

[ARMSTRONG, MOSTYN JOHN] ?
The History and Antiquities of the County of Norfolk, Containing an Account of the Hundred of Depwade.
Norwich: Stevenson and Matchett no date [1781], 1781. 1/4 Calf. Frontis, title page, 197 pp. The frontispiece, title and final leaf have been laid down, and the title page has been repaired with virtually no loss. c20th brown calf with black morocco title label and marbled boards and endpapers. Quite likely by Armstrong, and part of his 'history and antiquities of the county of Norfolk' project, given that Stevenson and Matchett published a number of volumes in Norwich for that series. The only seperate copy I can find is in the Harvard Library. They give a date, but no author. In any case, this is a rare item.. Very Good .
