An account of the 1831 Bristol Riots which occurred 29–31 October 1831 and were part of the 1831 reform riots in England. The riots arose after the second Reform Bill was voted down in the House of Lords, stalling efforts at electoral reform. The book was written by John Eagles (1783–1855), a Bristol author and artist and friend of the publisher, John Mathew Gutch. The book is illustrated with a frontispiece of Queen Square.
A reading copy. This is an ex-library copy and has several small stamps. The pages have a little tanning throughout and the inner binding is a little pulled in places but still secure. The books remains in good readable condition, it's just rather well-worn.
