Description

Excerpt from The Western Antiquary, Vol. 4: Or, Note-Book for Nebon, Cornwall, and Somerset In this connection he may draw attention to the able article which forms an Introduction to the present volume, for which he is indebted to a leading Somersetshire archaeologist and writer of no mean repute. Mr. Charles 1. Elton. Up. For West Somerset, whose portrait forms the frontispiece to the present volume, is a recognized authority upon antiquarian and historical matters, and it was a source of considerable gratification to the Editor to find a gentleman of such literary powers as the writer of Origins of English History, willing to put his stamp upon this work, by writing an introductory article. By this means, Mr. Elton has more closely identified the County of Somerset with the work, and enhanced the interest and value of the present Volume.
