Exeter's Custom House and Quay

Booklet published by Exeter City Council in 2010, 38 pages. A5 size booklet (N6253)

Illustrated throughout with several colour and black and white photographs, drawings and maps, this short booklet provides a brief history of the Custom House and Quay in Exeter.

From the introduction: Exeter's quayside preserves a fine series of historic buildings which reflect the city's former importance as one of England's leading ports. The centrepiece of the group is the Custom House, built in 1680-1, often regarded as the oldest Custom House in Britain. It formed part of a newly remodelled quayside; the long warehouse known as Quay House (now housing the Quay House Interpretation Centre), was constructed at the same time, and is also a building of great historic importance. Other buildings on the quay reflect the operation of the Georgian and Victorian port.

The condition of the booklet is generally very good. The cover has one or two very minor scuffs but is clean and bright, the staple spine is tight and intact, and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is a small price sticker on the rear side cover.
