Bound in original blue cloth, gilt, in pictorial dust wrapper, which has edge chips at head and tail of spine and neatly repaired tear at lower front right, with small missing section.

'This is the first attempt yet made to describe a Roman road in exhaustive detail - practically from field to field.' A very well illustrated account of the author's fifteen year's work on Stane Street, the Roman Road between Chichester and London. Samuel Edward Winbolt (1868-1944) was a classics scholar and teacher and an amateur archaeologist. He published numerous books on Latin, English history and literature, archaeology, including Roman Folkestone (advertised on the rear wrapper) and titles in the guidebook series of Bell and Penguin. A scarce title.
