In very good condition with very good dustwrapper (dw; spine slightly faded. Not price clipped). A clean and tight copy. 275pp. With b/w photographs, maps, plans and illustrations in text. The first book to be published on this subject for over 50 years. A completely new appreciation based on a fresh study of the evidence to be found in Hardy’s works, and on extensive research among diaries, letters, estate records, and topographical examination of every site and by the author’s questioning of local inhabitants. It corrects some errors, postulates some new identifications and admits to occasionally being baffled.
