Description:
London: Printed by Thomas Baskett and Robert Baskett, 1743. [2], 183-207pp, [1]. Disbound. Small marginal worm-tracks. A rare survival of a Georgian act relating to the improvement of the toll road between the parishes of Harlow and Great Chesterford, Essex. The collection of tolls, nominally raised in order to defray road maintenance expenses, was overseen by numerous 'turnpike trusts', each established by an individual act of parliament. Universally despised, and frequently corrupt, the turnpike system was eventually rendered obsolete by the rise of the railways. In 1895 the system was discontinued, when responsibility for the roads was handed to local authorities. . Folio.
