On Earthquakes in Devonshire

Trans. Devon Assoc., 1884, Vol XVI, pp. 641-661.


Edward Parfitt

Prepared by Michael Steer

Parts of Devonshire have from time immemorial been shaken by earthquakes. It occurred to the author, soon after the most recent shaking, on June 25th, 1883, that he should collect all the information he could on the topic, considering the exercise to quite within the province of the Devonshire Association. His research involved contact with, and receipt of reports from a number of Devonians, as well as a literature review, and newspaper reports on the topic. The article, from a copy of a rare and much sought-after journal can be downloaded from the Internet Archive. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
