You Caxton Publications

Not exactly Essex - but of interest perhaps to members of the Essex Society for Archaeology and History.

"We have recently published Medieval Weymouth, Growth and Decline by James Crump, Was it Yesterday by A. M. Bown, and George Butterworth, Memorial Volume edited by Wayne Smith. We continue to specialise in well-researched books by self-published authors and have several further titles on hand for later in the year. We would be very interested to hear from any members of Essex Society for Archaeology & History who have projects of this nature in hand.

"Medieval Weymouth, Growth and Decline examines the parallel histories of the twin towns of Weymouth and Melcombe Regis from the eleventh century to the end of the sixteenth, charting their rise and subsequent decline.

"Was it Yesterday is a fictionalised first-hand account of the author’s experiences during World War I. A. M. Bown, an Oxford scholar and then an artillery subaltern, was twice wounded and won the Military Cross for bravery. His account was first reviewed in the Times Literary Supplement and this is a new edition.

"George Butterworth, Memorial Volume is the first publication of a book of recollections compiled and circulated by Butterworth’s father in 1918. It contains tributes by Vaughan Williams among others. Butterworth was killed at the Battle of the Somme in 1916.

We would welcome any enquiries by members of your association.

Best regards,

Bob Fowke
