This 430 page book is packed with information, and is guaranteed to interest the reader for many months, not just for Christmas Avoid cheap photocopies that are difficult to read and have poor image quality FamLoc is the only publisher to properly republish local history books. This is a republication of the 1875 "Ye Parish of Camerwell" (note the ancient spelling). The Parish of Camberwell was comprised of Dulwich, Peckham, Peckham Rye, Nunhead, part of Herne Hill, and of course Camberwell itself. It lay in the county of Surrey until 1889, when it became a borough in the County of London. This FamLoc edition has been amended slightly from the original. There has been the inevitable changes to format, and the illustrations have been moved to coincide better with the text. Although some of the punctuation has been changed, the grammar and prose has been faithfully retained, other than changes to a handful of typographical errors and the very few instances where clarity was required. The footnotes of the original have been incorporated into the new Notes chapter at the end of the book, the annotated text being underlined. History of the Parish of Camberwell vol II consists of 430 pages and 43 images. It includes chapters on public houses, buildings of the past, manorial history, local places and their associations, literary associations, and Dulwich College. It will be of great interest to local historians, family historians, and others with connections to the Camberwell district.
