Excerpt from Bygone Somerset
His volume is not a county history nor a county guide; but either directly or in cidentally it covers the history of all the principal places in Somerset. The object of the editor and his coadjutors has been to treat of antiquities and romance, rather than of events which, however important in their way, have no special interest for the general reader. Each chapter is complete in itself, but it will be found that where possible each follows the other in relative sequence. The plan adopted in previous volumes of the Bygone Series has been maintained in this, an effort being made to treat antiquarian subjects without recourse to technicalities, and to bring into as great pro minence as possible the romance associated with localities. At the same time it is hoped that no historic facts in connection with the county and people of Somerset have been wholly overlooked, and that the volume, if it achieves its main object of entertaining the general reader, will also be found not lacking in value to the student.
