30 editions published between 1954 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Devon has a great sense of its own separate history. Throughout the centuries it was relatively isolated, with two long coastlines and comparatively short land boundaries, both ancient: Celtic Cornwall to the west and the rest of England to the east. Until the 19th century communications were very poor and Devon devloped a distinct culture, economy, dialect and landscape - contributing to its strong local pride and character. That Devon is different is a fact, and helps explain the interest in its history shown by Devon folk and their many visitors." "This new, revised edition, with an up-to-date Introduction, a new, extensive bibliography, the most recent population and similar statistical figures, reproduces the author's classic text in full, including the Gazetteer - at over two hundred pages a book in itself, describing every place, hamlet to city, in the country - and his superb collection of contemporary photographs. The book is packed with detailed information, as remarkable in its high quality as its huge quantity."--BOOK JACKET
