GUILDFORD IN THE OLDEN TIME Side-Lights on the History of a Quaint Old Town. George C. Williamson. George Bell & Sons, London 1904 First Edition 270pp plus 4pp adverts Illustrated Hardback. Author's Presentation Copy. This copy is bound in original red cloth covered boards with gilt titling to the spine which is sunned and blind borders to the upper and lower boards and the arms of Guildford town embossed to the upper board. Gilt top page edges other edges uncut. The author has pencilled on the f.e.p. 'With the compliments of the Author May 1919' with no other dedication. Very well illustrated, collated. A very nice study of Guildford with excellent illustrations, covering Government, History, Dominican Friary, Grammar School, Town Churches, Castle & Caverns, Abbots Hospital, Guildford Books, St. Thomas's Hospital, etc. The chapters on " Traders' Tokens " is a capital example of how Guildford traders coped with currency questions. Guildford is famous—to archaeologists—for three things : the most celebrated mace in the kingdom, a fine two-handled sword (also part of the civic insignia), and the first mention of cricket. To the generality of people the town itself, its position, and the surrounding scenery constitute its chief interest. Historically it is important as having great privileges, and intimately related to these, a long connection with the woollen trade, and once a Royal Mint; while "Abbot's Hospital" and the Grammar School are not less powerful links with the past.
