Edited by R. Pearse Chope, Introduction by Alan Gibson, hardback, 339 pages, Augustus M. Kelley Publishers, 1968.

This is a collection of the descriptions left by eleven early travellers of their tours in the West Country. The journeys recorded range from the famous exploration of John Leyland in n1534-43 to the agricultural observations of William Marshall and the 'Letters from England' of Robert Southey written in 1802. All were made well before the age of railways, and all present valuable and arresting glimpses of social and economic conditions of time.
