THE CHRISTOPHER T PEROWNE COPY WITH HIS ARMORIAL BOOKPLATE. This copy has pp.471-2 in vol. I which according to Upcott (p.623*) were cancelled; page 36 of the appendix to this volume is misprinted 32 as called for. Britton's scarce 'Cashiobury Park' leaf, rarely found, is not present with this copy which is complete without it. The plates, maps and plans have been bound together at the end of each volume with the exception of the plate 'High Altar Screen, St. Alban's Abbey Church', which is present as frontispiece to the first volume, and the county map which is similarly placed in the third volume.
