Some Recent Devonshire Literature

The Devonian Year Book, London: The Devonian Association, (1910) 144-146.


H. Tapley Soper

Prepared by Michael Steer

National pride in the industrial might of Britain and its growing Empire during the Victorian and Edwardian eras generated an increased public awareness of regional identity. Devon literature of that period became no longer just of interest to antiquarians or tourists. There was a growing market for it among Devonians, including those expatriates who formed Devonian associations in London and elsewhere. The London Devonian Association published a yearbook for many years. As a regular yearbook feature, H Tapley-Soper, Exeter's City Librarian, compiled a list of books that appeared in 1908-9 either about Devon, or books attributed to Devonshire authors. This index presents all the names in his 1910 list and as well includes those of the publishers and names that appear in some book titles. An original (print) copy of the year book is held at the University of Toronto Library and was produced from a digital copy that can be downloaded from: Google Books with a search by either author or title, and also from the Internet Archive. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. These books, on which copyright has expired, are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
