[GREAT BRITAIN. Board of Inland Revenue]. Assessor's Warrant and instructions.

[London?]. [s.n.], 1847.
Quarto. 30pp. With the tax commissioners' wax seals, a couple of paragraphs in red. In the original stamped blue wrappers. Spine a bit cracked, small repair to lower margin of upper cover, trace of horizontal fold, slight age browning, little marginal spotting and offsetting from seals to a few leaves. Contemporary inscriptions 'Uggeshall' and 'L781' to wrappers, names of appointed assessors and appointing commissioners' signatures in black-brown ink.
A very scarce survival, of Suffolk provenance, in the history of Victorian taxation. Like other such 19th-century pamphlets, it certifies, stamped with wax seals, the appointment of specific local assessors of duties of assessed taxes on behalf of the central administration. It also contains instructions on the assessment of specific duties (e.g. on windows, male servants, waiters in taverns, carriages, race horses and armorial bearings), with tables facilitating calculations.
