The South Devon Coast

London, Chapman & Hall, Ltd. (1907), 304 pp.

by

Charles G. Harper

Prepared by Michael Steer

The book is part sketchbook, part a romantic and entertaining ramble along our county's southern coast. It is a classic example of the type of literature generated by the phenomenal growth during the Victorian and Edwardian periods of the Westcountry tourism industry, Most of the sketches are competently drawn, several are delightful. Charles George Harper (1863-1943) was both author as well as a talented book illustrator. Born in London, Harper wrote many self-illustrated travel books, exploring the regions, roads, coastlines, literary connections, old inns etc. of Britain. In later life, he lived in Petersham. Aside from his 170 topographical works, he also wrote a few books on drawing and its techniques, including English Pen Artists of To-day (1892) and A Practical Handbook of Drawing for Modern Methods of Reproduction (1894), as well as an anti-feminist polemic, Revolted Woman; past, present, and to come (1894), and a satirical novel, Hearts Do Not Break: a Tale of the Lower Slopes (1896), attacking logrolling (mutual praise by authors of each other's work), among the London literary set. This rare and much sought-after book was produced digitally by Google from a copy in the University of California Library collection and can be downloaded from HathiTrust. 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.
