[EAN: 9780850336030], [PU: Phillimore & Co Ltd], NORFOLK, KINGS LYNN PAUL RICHARDS 0850336031, 910003574-670-SC208 Book Notes: Signed copy. 670LYNN has a long history. As important in the Middle Ages as Liverpool was to become in the Industrial Revolution, it was a major port for centuries, with access to ten counties through the Ouse river system. Aptly described as ‘the Warehouse on the Wash’, it maintained its position until the railway robbed it of much of its traffic in the mid-l9th cen tury. After a century in relative decline, the last thirty years have seen vigorous expansion and revival in the town, which makes it the more surprising that this long-awaited new book from Dr. Richards is the first history of Lynn to be published since 1907. The author’s approach is thematic, allowing the reader direct access to any aspect of Lynn’s past, providing the com prehensive coverage of a general history that draws on much recent research, in cluding unpublished theses, and a broad range of primary and secondary sources. He deals with the ‘ups and downs’ of the town’s building and its fascinating archi tectural history, and with the extensive maritime trade which generated the wealth that made building possible. He explores the industries and markets stimulated by that trade and the society and politics of a town whose character was shaped by its maritime economy. Finally, he reflects on the events and the social and industrial revolutions brought about by the coming of the railways and by the town expansion of the 1960s. Though the author is an academic his torian who has researched and taught Lynn history for many years, his narra tive is by no means ‘heavy’. His style is engaging, stimulating and eminently readable, so that citizens and visitors alike will find his ‘story to be told’ about King’s Lynn an enjoyable experience. Scholars of all ages and kinds, mean while, will welcome the new light he throws on the history of Lynn and on Lynn’s place in history. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT DUE TO WEIGHT, THIS BOOK MAY ATTRACT AN ADDITIONAL POSTAGE CHARGE
