Pigot's 1831 Topography and Gazetteer of England

I have just seen this book offered at half price on the Archive CD Book web site and as it covers Hertfordshire and all adjacent counties some of you may be interested. I have brought some excellent Hertfordshire-related material from this company in the past. The sales blurb reads as follows:

Pigot's 1831 Topography and Gazetteer of England 

Ref: 0855
(Vol. 1)Note: although this book is dated 1831, it is more likely to have been published between 1837 (when Pigot moved to 9 Fleet Street London) and 1840.
A superb and very rare pocket topography and gazetteer of the following English counties;
Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Cornwall, Devonshire, Dorsetshire, Essex, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Huntingdonshire, Kent, Middlesex, Norfolk, Oxfordshire, Somersetshire, Suffolk, Surrey, Sussex and Wiltshire.
Includes historical and statistical descriptions, distances, parochial and population tables, descriptive accounts of Market and Fair towns, parishes, townships, chapelries, hamlets, tythings etc.
There is also a lovely map for each county and lots of beautiful vignetted illustrations of cathedrals and churches.
This book was kindly loaned to the Project by the London Borough of Barnet Archives.
