Notes

A handsomely bound set of Brayley's copiously illustrated history of Surrey.

Brayley's "most important work was probably a History of Surrey (5 vols., 18418). His topographical works bear scrutiny because of his competence in a range of scientific, literary, and artistic subjects, a breadth of knowledge which few other contemporary topographers could match" (ODNB).

Provenance: imposing armorial bookplate of Colonel Frederick Heygate Lambert (1857-1929) and the shelf label of his Garratts Hall Library; sold by his heirs (Sotheby sale, July 1, 1930, lot 291.
