This delightful little book is reprinted here as a facsimile of the edition of 1893. It is profusely illustrated by fine engravings, and covers the area of the West Cornwall peninsula from Land's End and the First and Last hotel eastwards to beyond Penzance. It provides readers with an interesting account of the area towards the end of the nineteenth century. It should appeal to all lovers of the South West peninsula.
As well as illustrating the scenery, places of interest, buildings and antiquites of the area, the author comments on life and occupations including fishing and mining. He also gives us a clear insight into the tourism of that time.
Those interested in natural history will find a wealth of illustrated information concerning plants, birds and fish in the area, for comparison with the present-day fauna and flora.
This reprint has been done as a companion to the author's other book on the "Churches of West Cornwall"
