Lincolnshire's Great Exhibition : Treasures, Saints and Heroes Paperback
Lincolnshire's Great Exhibition gathers together an extraordinary selection of national treasures, all with Lincolnshire connections, from private and public collections.
Inspired by the 800th anniversary of Lincoln's Magna Carta in 2015, it is a celebration of the art and culture, religion, public service and scholarship that have emanated from this ancient county over eight centuries. Many of Britain's most influential and creative figures, from politicians to poets, artists to explorers, were sons and daughters of Lincolnshire, including Sir Isaac Newton, John Wesley, Alfred, Lord Tennyson and Margaret Thatcher.
They are presented alongside treasures from great Lincolnshire country houses, maps, manuscripts and topographical views by Turner, Girton, De Wint and Stubbs.
