Professor James Stevens Curl is proposing to bring out a limited, numbered, finely bound, hardback, enlarged facsimile edition of the seminal work on cemeteries by J. C. Loudon, originally published in London in 1843 on very poor-quality paper and with an extremely small font.
The new edition will be on good paper, with an enlarged font, and will include a new annotated Introductory Essay on Loudon’s involvement with cemeteries by Professor Curl, with Bibliography, a colour portrait of Loudon, a facsimile of Loudon’s Obituary of 1844, a List of Subscribers, and an Index compiled by Auriol Griffith-Jones.
Subscriptions are invited, to be received no later than 30 September 2019. The cost per copy is £40.00 to include postage and packing within the United Kingdom only. For postage to Europe please add £5.00, and for postage outside Europe please add £10.00.
Copies will be sent out to subscribers as soon as the book is available, estimated as December 2019. After 30 September the price per copy will be £55.00, so Subscribers will get a fine copy at less than cost.
