Early Victorian Dorking - A mid-nineteenth century country town, by Robert Humphreys

Book published by the Dorking Local History Group in 2002, 80 pages. A5 size booklet (S5893)

Dorking is a historic market town in Surrey, around 25 miles south of London, and this book is an excellent and detailed account of the town in the mid 19th century, with chapters on jobs, families, education, social welfare and the workhouse, religion, and more!

Condition of the book is generally ok. The cover has some minor scuffs, blemishes and creases, and some light nibbling along the edges, and an area of wear and small tearing along the very bottom of the outside spine (see photograph), but the spine itself is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
