A descriptive sketch of parts of Somersetshire, chiefly in the northwestern district, written in about A.D. 1829-1850
A descriptive sketch of parts of Somersetshire, chiefly in the northwestern district. Among the places particularly described are:
- Banwell (fols. 6, 97, 125, 324, 356);
- Cheddar (fols. 92, 111, 219, 246, 278);
- Glastonbury (fol. 138);
- Wells (fols. 171, 348);
- Wookey Hole (fol. 334);
- Crewkerne (fol. 367).
Many engravings are inserted. Dates from 1829 to 1847 are at fols. 105v, 123, 131, 372v, etc. Part of this volume appears to be the first draught of a large portion of John Rutter's Delineations of the North Western Division of the County of Somerset (Lond. 1829, 8°), and all may be in his handwriting.
