Benn's 'History of the Town of Belfast.' consists of two volumes, here bound together in full red leather with bright gilt titling and decoration. 5 raised bands to the spine with gilt decorated banding and gilt decoration in the compartments. A black leather title label with titling in gilt. The front and rear covers have gilt banding and the front cover has the Royal Coat of Arms in bright gilt in the centre. Some of the leather is rubbed/scraped to the edges in places and a small triangle of leather (approx 1cm x 1cm) is missing from the top front of the spine, together with a 4cm sliver of leather from the top edge of the spine. Considering the size of the book All Hinges are Tight and Sound, although the front inner paper hinge is splitting. ALL edges bright GILT. A Handsome volume.

A few maps/plans have varying sized (now closed) tears to crease lines and/or a blank section. The genealogy of the O'Neills, and the two, tinted, portraits of Arthur Chichester are present in the book as called for. This book is the indispensable foundation for all studies of Belfast's history. There is a gift note dated 1918 on the second free blank endpaper "From J. F. W. Hodges, the nephew of the Author, to his daughter Harriet Benn Williams." also enclosed is a letter (a single sheet folded in 2 written on 4 sides) dated 24th March 1877 starting "My dear Uncle, I have been lately collecting as much information as I can about our family.
