Aspects of Leicester 1 is the first Wharncliffe title to appear in the East Midlands. However in Yorkshire and Lancashire, our publications have gathered a devoted following and after only ten years of publication, earlier titles are already sought after collectors items. In Aspects of Leicester 1, John Hinks, has drawn together twelve fascinating views of the city's history. From Medieval Alms House origins, we visit The Hospital of the Holy Trinity and nearby Newarke Houses, now a museum but which once housed a colourful assortment of people. Among the personalities who contributed to Leicester's history we meet, John Throsby, historian and engraver, Thomas Cooper, Chartist leader and publisher, Sir Jonathan North, Manufacturer, Politician and Philanthropist, plus a number of Local Businesswomen who controlled Leicester enterprises between the 16th and the late 19th centuries. We witness the Defence of Ladysmith by the Leicestershire Regiment in Caged Tigers"
