Midhurst - A Brief History
As it says on the cover, this book, by Frances Johnson-Davies, is brief and therefore easy to read. Historical facts are linked by quirky, lesser-known anecdotes. It is lavishly illustrated by Max Wholey with reproductions of engravings and old prints by S G Grimm and evenothers. Some of the content will be familiar to those who live here, but there will likely be a few surprises as well. It is a fascinating story.
Marina, The Viscountess Cowdray commented:
"I read this slender volume with the greatest pleasure and interest. It is history brought forward as it should be: terse and pulsating, and well-written. I warmly congratulate the author, its illustrator, and The Midhurst Society on a truly professional publication."
The book is out of print but second-hand copies are sometimes available
