First published in 1912, this volume presents the sixth edition of Lord Ernle’s study of English farming, updated by Sir A. Daniel Hall in the fifth edition, from the manorial system through the reigns of Elizabeth I, James I and the Stewarts, to large industrialised farms, the Corn Laws and the Great Depression. Lord Ernle’s volume remains the classic handbook on the subject and will be of use to students, teachers and academics of agricultural studies.
A collection of original essays by distinguished historians on the works of topographical writers who described and recorded the landscape of South-West England in the period c. 1540-1900. The development, subject matter and contribution to knowledge of a range of key authors is examined. For example, John Leland's classic descriptions of South-West England will be assessed and the works of local writers in the Tudor and Stuart era who followed an developed his approach to the description of people and places is examined. Amongst these, Richard Carew of Anthony produced perhaps the finest of any of the descriptions of an English region in his study of Cornwall, published in 1602. The authors follow the writings of Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset topographers who contributed to the genre over more than three centuries. The book also includes a gazetter of collections in Devon and Cornwall where copies of the works of local topographical writers can be found.
