64 pages. Card covers. 64 pages, including 15 illustrations. New. This booklet [states the foreword], is intended to be a short history of one of the most significant and least written about periods of history in North Staffordshire. The Chartist movement was to be the catalyst to perhaps the greatest radical and violent political action that Staffordshire has ever experienced. There is a special section about Joseph Capper, one of the most enduring and interesting characters to come out of North Staffordshire. he was not a famous potter, or a member of a wealthy family, but simply a blacksmith. His tale has been part of the Chartist legend for the last 150 years. And part of the myth. This booklet has a useful place in putting Chartism into context at a local level.
