The City of Plymouth has undergone many changes since it’s foundation as a tiny fishing port. In his book Plymouth – A New History the late Crispin Gill produced a standard history of Plymouth that has remained in print for over four decades. Revised and updated in various editions, this new work is further edited and republished in this new format.

Starting with the Norman Conquest the book follows each major development of the city, its social and political upheavals, and the principal figures who emerged to become an indelible part of Plymouth’s history, and that of the nation. The book concludes with the destruction of the much of the old city during the bombing raids suffered during the Second World War.

Containing over 150 photographs, maps and other illustrations, Plymouth – An Illustrated History provides the reader with a concise and exciting narrative of what made Plymouth into one of the world’s great maritime cities.

Imprint: Halsgrove, ISBN 978 1 84114 978 3, hardback, 297x210mm, 160 pages.
