6 volumes. Large Folio. Comprising 1. Facsimile Edition of the Great Domesday, all 413 folios reproduced in full colour in 2 volumes. Bound in quarter leather with 15th century oak boards, enclosed in slipcases quarter bound in allum goatskin with irish linen sides. Plus a separate volume with the title page and general introduction. Mounted on the boards are two pennies [hence the ‘Penny Edition’], one from c. 1086, a William the Conqueror penny, the other a special proof impression of a 1986 bronze penny. 2. The Translation into English of the Original Domesday. 2 volumes, bound in quarter leather with Irish linen sides, top edges gilt. 3. 2 solander boxes, quarter leather with irish linen sides, containing a complete set of the maps [33 counties on 28 sheets] and the indexes and fascicules for each county together with the gazetteer. Also included are some of the translation fascicules for the counties which were issued separately for use with the ordinary editions for each county [but not called for in this edition]. Number 211 of an edition of 250 copies only. Scarce, as most copies would have gone to institutions. This would appear to be a deluxe edition, as not all copies had all the volumes in the quarter leather bindings. Topography
