Accompanied by an electronic catalog of all extant parliamentary and non-parliamentary enclosure maps of England and Wales, this book will be an essential research tool for economic, social and local historians as well as geographers, lawyers and planners.

    • Accompanied by a fully searchable, descriptive and analytical web catalogue of all parliamentary and non-parliamentary enclosure maps extant in public archives and libraries
