Devonshire & Cornwall illustrated : with historical and topographical descriptions

by

John Britton and Edward Wedlake Brayley

London, H. Fisher, R. Fisher & P. Jackson (1832) 96, 47 pp.: maps.

Prepared by Michael Steer

Author John Britton was born in 1771 at Kington St. Michael, near Chippenham. His parents were in humble circumstances, and he was left an orphan at an early age. After some slight successes as a writer, a Salisbury publisher commissioned him to compile an account of Wiltshire and, in conjunction with his friend Edward Wedlake Brayley, Britton produced The Beauties of Wiltshire (1801; 2 vols., a third added in 1825), the first of the series The Beauties of England and Wales, nine volumes of which Britton and his friend wrote. This volume is one in the series. Britton was the originator of a new class of literary works. Before his time, "popular topography was unknown." Edward Wedlake Brayley (1773 - 1854) was also an antiquary and topographer. In 1823 he like Britton was elected a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries. He died in London. This rare and much sought-after book was produced digitally from a copy held in the Tilden Collection, New York Public Library that 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.
