Abstract of Returns of Charitable Donations for Poor Persons in the County of Bucks.
Aylesbury: Published by T. W. Faulkner; Woodman, Printer. 1820. 4to, iv, 81, [1, blank]pp., ownership signature of Thomas Field (1884), with printed label of G. H. Wyatt on front paste-down, cont. marbled boards, re-backed and new corner pieces, rubbed, joints cracked, orig. printed label on upper cover. Faulkner published this work to draw to public attention "the 'Abuse' that at the present time, and for many years past, have been existing in the distributions of 'Various Charities'... Some curious returns will surprise the Reader, of 'Large Receipt's' and 'Trifling Expenditure', yet declared the 'Trusts in Debt'; to others irregularly paid or not at all, and to numerous accounts of the annual trivial irregularly to be the produce of Gifts to the Poor, that if correct, would appear rather an 'Insult' than intended as a 'Relief'." (Preface). Copac recording a single copy at the British Library.
