"Few cities have had such a long and distinguished history as Chester. It has been a Roman fortress, a Saxon burh, and a port. In the Middle Ages Chester defended the Northern Marches against the Welsh, and in the 17th century it supported Charles I against Parliament. Chester has been a Cathedral city since 1541, and a trading center throughout its history. It is therefore with pride that Chester celebrates in 1979 its 1900th Anniversary."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
