From the rear side cover: This volume is the first in a series of transcriptions of the registers of clandestine marriages which took place in the area in and around the Fleet Prison in London between the years 1680 and 1754. Mark Herber describes the fascinating history of these marriages and introduces the two registers transcribed here, covering the periods November 1736 to January 1754 and November 1736 to July 1748. The registers are published with the author's explanatory notes, page references for the original documents held at the Public Record Office, and an index of places and of surnames.

Condition of the book is generally very good. The covers have one or two very minor scuffs but are clean and bright, the spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
