THE HISTORY OF THE CITY AND COUNTY OF NORWICH, F. Blomefield, printed at Fersfield, 1741; a self-contained volume on Norwich, being Volume 2 of the first edition of Blomefield’s work on Norfolk; list of subscribers; 6 engraved plates only (of 8, lacking the city plan and the monument of Bishop Hall in Heigham Church); title page printed in red and black; index; vi+914pp; folio; endpapers detached and frayed at edges, contemporary calf, raised bands, some wear on spine and upper hinge, corners bumped; scarce. 180 pounds

The collation is taken from Upcott, p. 945-7.  The author used his own press.  The insertion of plates is thought to have been erratic, which might account for the apparent absence of the plate of the monument of Bishop Hall, while the city plan has doubtless been separated from the book at some stage.
