Eighth Report of the Committee on Devonshire Celebrities

Trans. Devon Assoc., vol 19 (1887), pp. 95-101.


R.W. Cotton (ed.)

Prepared by Michael Steer

The Committee's object was to produce a compendium of the county's celebrities, initially from existing biographical compilations, then "by means of casual observation and research". Its eighth report, delivered at the Association's 1887 Plympton meeting notes the arrival of the first six volumes of The Dictionary of National Biography and includes those celebrities not previously recorded in its collection. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. The Internet Archive makes available, in its Community Texts Collection (originally known as Open Source Books), books that have been digitised by Google from a number of libraries. These are books on which copyright has expired, and are available free for educational and research use. This rare book was produced from a copy held by the Princeton University Library, and is available from the Internet Archive.
