Picturesque Excursions in Devonshire and Cornwall.
Part 1: Devonshire


T.H. Williams

London: J. Murray, 1804, illus. 108 pp.

Prepared by Michael Steer

The text is presented in two distinct parts, each discretely numbered. The first part: Views in Devonshire, pp. 1-36, and the second part in two sections: A tour to the north, then the south of Devon, pp. 1-108. The author indicates that this small book was undertaken as a relaxation from painting and was intended to provide "in slight sketches, the most striking scenery in the counties of Devon and Cornwall". It is written in a quaint antiquarian style. The book's focus is on his third excursion in Devonshire and includes visits to Tamerton Foliot, Maristow and Buckland Monachorum, just north of Plymouth; and Lidford, Okehampton and Drewsteignton on Dartmoor. This rare and much sought-after book was produced digitally from a copy in the Harvard University Library collection as the gift in 1920 of William Endicott Jnr and dedicated by its author to the Rev J Bidlake, BA, whose poetry decorates the first section It 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.
