Aspects of Exeter
Aspects of Exeter

The reappearance of this classic book on Exeter will be welcomed by all those who know and love the city. On first publication over a quarter of a century ago, this stunning collection of photographs of the city sold out in a matter of days, and has now become highly sought after.

Based largely on historic photographs from the Isca Collection, supported by a text by the late Jacqueline Warren who contributed articles on the city for the Express & Echo for many years, the book is now a timepiece, charting the changes made to the face of the city from medieval times through to the rebuilding during the post-war era. Over 400 photographs reveal whole areas of the city as it used to be, with fascinating pictures of individual buildings and whole streets swept away by the bombs of Hitler and the pens of over-enthusiastic planners.

Peter Thomas might well be considered Exeter’s honorary historian as for, over many years, he has contributed to countless events, exhibitions and publications associated with the city’s past. As a photographer he has produced a considerable number of illustrated books on Exeter and Devon based on his own photographs, but it is as an historian and collector of photographs that he is best known, not least for his establishment of the Isca Collection. Peter lives in Exeter.

The late Jacqueline Warren was among the city’s foremost local historians and her text for this book provides an important historic record of Exeter in times past.

ISBN 1841145106, hardback, 297x210mm, 200 pages. Published June 2006.
