Fourth Report of the Committee on Bibliography

Trans. Devon Assoc., vol. 51, (1919), pp. 130-133.


R. Burnet Morris, M.A., LL.B. (Camb.)

Prepared by Michael Steer

The Report was delivered at the Association’s 51st Tiverton meeting on 23rd July, 1919. The Committee was established on February 18th, 1915, to compile a new Bibliography of the County of Devon. The Bibliography to include: -
(a) Works of persons born or resident in Devon;
(b) Works printed in Devon;
(c) Works written wholly or partly in Devon;
(d) Works relating wholly or partly to Devon or Devonians.

Mr. Maxwell Adams, Rev. J. F. Chanter, Mr. Hugh R. Watkin, Mr. H. B. S. Woodhouse, Miss B. F. Cresswell, Mr. J. Northmore, and Mr. H. Tapley-Soper were appointed Committee members “for the compilation of a Bibliography of the County of Devon”; with Mr. R. Burnet Morris as  Secretary.
Committee progress was at first slow. However, during the year under review its progress was deemed greater than in any preceding year.  Accessions during the year were divided into three classes: (1) Notes on MSS. in the Public Record Office, (2) Notes on Parish Registers, and (3) Miscellaneous Notes.
