Fat 4to. 8 x 11.75 inches. [xviii] + 284 +  pp. In green pictorial paper wrapper with cloth spine. Minor wear to extremities, but otherwise a very good copy. One of the first detailed studies to examine the transition from feudal to capitalist production in a small town during the period of agrarian capitalisation and the expansion of rural industry from the mid-fifteenth century. Partly because of its Cinque Port heritage, the town of Lydd on Romney Marsh has a remarkable survival of the great variety of sources required for this type of in depth analysis. Spencer Dimmock is a historian specialising in the economic and social transformation of the late medieval and early modern periods. This thesis was submitted to the University of Kent at Canterbury in 1998.
