Author Albin, John, active 1791-1800.

Title A new, correct, and much-improved history of the Isle of Wight : from the earliest times of authentic Information, to the present period: Comprehending whatever is curious or worthy of Attention in Natural History, With Its Civil, Ecclesiastical, And Military State In The Various Ages, Both Ancient And Modern. The modern history, in a more especial manner, from the topographical arrangement under which it is related, and from the liberal communications of gentlemen of the island, has peculiar claims to public notice, and demands, from its interesting and important tendency, the most particular regard; so as to render the work every way far superior to any thing yet published relative to this favourite spot. To which is annexed, a very copious index of the subjects contained in it; and to the whole is prefixed a new and very elegant map of the island, dedicated, by Permission, to the Right Honorable Thomas Orde Powlett, Governor of the Island; purposely engraved for this work, table of contents, &c.

Published Newport [Isle of Wight] : printed by and for J. Albin, and sold in London by Scatcherd and Whitaker, Booksellers, Ave Maria Lane, and all the Booksellers, 1795.
