AIKIN, John(?1809)England Delineated [Hunts, Cambs & part of Norfolk]Extracted from the larger work - see our 1803 edition. The loose pages are in a paper folder with titling in MS by Norris on the outside. On the first page he also writes in pencil the dates of the various editions and reprints. If his dates are correct, this is probably the 1809 edition, because p. 175 includes a ref to the Norman Cross barracks. They were built in 1797, so this can't be the 1795 edition. It could be the 1800 one, but as the passage doesn't appear in the 1803 edition it seems more likely that this updating didn't take place until after that, which only leaves 1809.HUNTS: Description

By John Dunton, Author of The Sickmans Passing Bell.Autograph of Archdeacon Wrangham, 1814; stamp of Alexander Gardyne, 1883; and note pinned to the fly-leaf doubting the authorship. Note that this was one of the seven books that Dunton says, without explanation, that he regrets printing (John DUNTON, 1705, p. 223): presumably because it was indeed a forgery.
DUNTON, John [Senior]1685 (contd. 1)Note pinned to the fly-leaf reads: "Heavenly Pastime 1685. Dunton in his "Life and Errors" says he has nothing to repent of but the publicatn. of 7 books, which he enumerates, & this is one of them:- for these, he says, he heartily wishes he had never seen them & advises all that have them to BURN them. & Certainly they deserve no better fate. In the Epistle to this H.P. he presents it as a work of his father, the Rector of Aston Clinton; now Dunton, the printer, was a loose fish & the question arises, was it really the work of the divine, or his feckless son; the book was printed in 1685 & the first died in 1678 & was not, therefore, a party to its publication. The title bears simply "John Dunton, the author of the Sick Mans Passing Bells". In a list of the pubs of J.D. at the end, the Father is credited with this last; but altho the H.P. is set forth fully, it is without the name of the author." (contd.)
DUNTON, John [Senior]1685 (contd. 2)Note pinned to fly-leaf continues: "The printer had his Fathers MSS & tells the readers of his book if it meets with appobation others of the parent will follow, but we hear of no more such which is not surprizing, & very much doubt if the Parson of Aston Clinton ever desecrated the Holy Bible or his own pen by such Heavenly Allegories as these. I wonder its former owner, Archdn Wrangham, did not take the printers advice & throw it into the fire. Got this from Edis, 1 Mar 1881." [Edis the St Neots bookseller, so the note is by someone local]
