The antient and modern history of the loyal town of Rippon: [Introduc'd by a poem on the surprizing beauties of Studley Park, with a description of the venerable ruins of Fountains-Abbey, written by Mr. Peter Aram; and another on the pleasures of a country life, by a Reverend young gentleman.] With particular accounts of three of the northern saints in the seventh century, ... The famous charters of King Athelstane, and other monarchs, (given by them to the Church of Rippon) translated: the various times of re-building that minister, since its first foundation: its present happy state; .... An exact list of the wakemen and mayors of the town, to this present year; interspersed with remarkable accidents. The death of several eminent persons: in particular, some of the venerable archbishops of this see, whose tombs are partly describ'd, with proper references to the history of York, for their inscriptions and epitaphs, to which this is very supplemental. Adorned with many cuts, preceded by a south west prospect (and a new plan) of Rippon. Besides are added, travels into other parts of Yorkshire. I. Beverley, an account of its minister: the seal of St. John: the beauty of St. Mary's.: and a list of the mayors of the town, since incorporated. ... VIII. Towns near York: as, Tadcaster, Bilbrough, Bolton Percy; Howlden; Selby, Wis[t]ow, Cawood Church and Castle; Acaster and Bishopsthorpe; Acomb, Nun. Monkton and Skelton, &c. with their antiquity and inscriptions. Faithfully and painfully collected by Tho. Gent, of York. To which is subjoin'd, by the Author of The Country Life, a letter to the Hon. John Aislabie, Esq; ----The Happy Reign; an Eclogue. And a Latin copy of verses, with a translation, on the renowned grotto of Queen Caroline.
