Banfield's Shilling Guide Book to North Devon


Rev. George Tugwell (Ed.)

Ilfracombe, John Banfield (c186-) illus., 74 pp.

Prepared by Michael Steer

The Rev George Tugwell, MA. Oriel College, Oxford (1829-1910) was a noted marine biologist and curate of Ilfracombe 1853-67, then of Lee 1869-71. He was author of A Manual of Sea Anemones and also wrote The North-Devon Scenery Book and The North Devon Hand Book. One of the leading printing and bookselling businesses in North Devon was that of John Banfield in the High Street, Ilfracombe. Established by 1820, at which date he registered his press, he soon opened a circulating library and in 1830 published a guide to Ilfracombe, a second edition appearing in 1834. Benefiting from the nearness of such famous beauty spots as Lynton and Lynmouth, he became the leading publisher of illustrated guidebooks in North Devon between 1830 and 1860. He was still catering for tourists in the late 1850s, when he started to publish Banfield's arrival list during the season. This rare and much sought-after book was produced digitally and can be downloaded from Google Books. 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.
