Book published by Folly Publications, 124 pages. Paperback (N6278)

This book provides a fascinating account of the castles of parts of southern England, and is illustrated throughout with lots of small black and white photographs, as well as drawings, maps and floor plans.

From the rear side cover: This book is a comprehensive guide to the history and architecture of castellated buildings dating from the late 11 th century to the mid 16th century in the counties of Kent, Surrey and Sussex. An introduction describes the development of fortified buildings in these counties as they were before the boundary changes saw parts of Kent and Surrey absorbed into London. Eighty buildings in the three counties are then described in detail with the aid of old and new photographs, prints, and plans reproduced to a set of common scales. The book includes motte and bailey sites, castles of stone and brick, moated or embattled manor houses, town defences and coastal blockhouses and artillery forts built by Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I.

The condition of the book is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is an old price printed and a small price sticker on the rear side cover.
