1783 Antiquities of England & Wales Illustrated Cathedrals Castles 3v SET Grose 237 Incredible Copper Engravings / BEAUTIFUL Gift Francis Grose (1731 Ė 1791) was an English antiquary, draughtsman, and lexicographer. His prime interest was in the field of medieval remains, which led him to publish the first part of The Antiquities of England and Wales, a work which he unashamedly aimed at the popular market. Essentially it targeted those who wanted to know about antiquities but had neither time nor means to visit them in person, and contained small panoramas of medieval ruins, together with an informative text on a separate page. We do not find another example of these tomes for sale together elsewhere worldwide! The large number of illustrations of castles, cathedrals and cities make these volumes highly desirable!
