This book of over 200 pages of text along with many engravings and woodcuts showing buildings, people and maps deals with the history of Hull starting in the 11th century and finishing in the early part of the 19th century (the book was published in 1835). The book includes chapters on commerce, Churches, Dissenting chapels, Trinity house, Charitable institutions, Free Schools, Medical, Literary and Musical institutions, Public buildings and Biographical notices. The biographical section includes the Del la Poles, Luke Fox, Andrew Marvel, Sir John Lawson, Commodore Edward Thompson, John Mason, Benjamin Thompson, Daniel Sykes MP, and William Wilberforce Esq. There are numerous others people mentioned in the main texts.
