For those wishing to know: This is the first ever book produced on the
history of Horsham, Sussex, England. It contains a good deal of
historical research and descriptions of the town and was written in 1836.
What makes the book so special is that the author, illustrator, engraver
and printer was Howard Dudley, who was 14-16 years old at the time.
Dudley was born in 1820 and died of consumption on 4th July 1864.
All the best,
England, damp and small floods everywhere, most of the snow melted
