Fifth Report of the Committee on Bibliography

Trans. Devon Assoc., vol. 52, (1920), pp. 130-134.


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

Prepared by Michael Steer

The Report was delivered at the Association’s 52nd Totnes meeting on 21st July, 1920. 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 continued as Committee members “for the compilation of a Bibliography of the County of Devon”; with Mr. R. Burnet Morris as  Secretary.
It was reported that steady progress was made during the year under review, the number of written slips added to the collection were practically the same as last year. Much work, however, still remained. Accessions for 1919-20 were separated into three classes (1) Notes on MSS. in the Public Record Office, (2) Notes on Parish Registers, and (3) Miscellaneous Notes.
