About the Authors
  • Originally published during the early part of the twentieth century, the Cambridge County Geographies were designed to provide a series of concise guides to British regions. Aimed at the general reader, they combined a comprehensive approach to various aspects of physical and human geography with an emphasis on clarity. This guide to Cornwall by S. Baring-Gould was first published in 1910. The text is interspersed with numerous illustrative figures and also contains a list of the chief towns and villages within the county.
