Highways And Byways In Derbyshire Book PDF, EPUB Download & Read Online Free
Excerpt from Highways and Byways in Derbyshire My obligations are many. I have made free use of all books, old and new, relating to Derbyshire, and have borrowed liberally from the volumes of the Notts and Derbyshire Archaeological Society, which is fortunate, above most county societies, in the energy and numbers of its members and con tributors. I am also more particularly indebted to Mr. Edward Hunter, of Ashbourne, for permission to use a short manu script in his possession by the late Lord Denman, to Dr. Wrench, of Baslow, and Mr. Wright, Of Longstone Hall, for much local information, and to Miss Erichsen not only for the charm Of her illustrations but for numerous interesting details relating to persons and places. Nor would I forget to thank the many chance and momentary acquaintances whom I met on the roads and in the fields Of Derbyshire and, perhaps, wearied by my questioning curiosity.

Between the end of the nineteenth century and the Second World War Macmillan published a much-loved and extremely successful series of books under the title of 'Highways and Byways'. In them, the authors took readers on a delightful guided tour of the country, county by county, pointing out places of interest, key historical events and local lore and legend. Now, Macmillan is reissuing - in one beautifully designed volume - a selection of those highways and byways, which affords contemporary readers both a charming period piece and a wonderful glimpse of the very best of Britain.

Examining the unpublished letters and manuscripts of the poet Anna Seward (1742-1809), Teresa Barnard provides a fresh perspective on her life and historical milieu that restores and problematizes Seward's carefully constructed narrative of her life. Barnard's biography of Seward not only challenges what is known about Seward, but provides new information about the lives and times of eighteenth-century writers.
