Salisbury Plain Its Stones, Cathedral City, Valleys And Folk

Book Introduction: Besides depending upon the classic authority of Sir Richard Colt Hoare, and the topographical and biographical writings of our earlier Wiltshire antiquary, the only and incomparable John Aubrey, I have drawn freely for information upon the Magazine of the Wiltshire Archaeological Society, and upon Wiltshire Notes and Queries.

On Salisbury and the Cathedral there are many books; among the more recent writings on special points I may mention those of the Rev C Wordsworth, Mr Maiden and Mr C Haskins.

The Plain has been adopted of late years as a military training ground. But there is less change, however, than might be thought. The landscape is so large and open that the camps scattered here and there from April to September—and even the permanent settlements are soon lost and forgotten in its immensity.

Salisbury, The Cathedral And See

Preface: This series of monographs has been planned to supply visitors to the great English Cathedrals with accurate and well illustrated guide books at a popular price. The aim of each writer has been to produce a work compiled with sufficient knowledge and scholarship to be of value to the student of archaeology and history, and yet not too technical in language for the use of an ordinary visitor or tourist.

From the authors: There is probably no cathedral church in Europe, certainly no other English one, that has such a clear record of its history as Salisbury. Whereas in almost every other instance we have only vague legendary accounts of the original foundation of the building, in this case there is a trustworthy chronicle of its first inception and each successive stage of its progress extant.

The Hampshire Antiquary and Naturalist Volume 1

Local Notes and Queries, and other Antiquarian and Natural History Matters connected with the County of Hampshire.

From the preface: It has often been suggested that there should be some permanent record of the meetings of the Hampshire Field Club. This Club is doing much by its periodical visits to various parts of the county to make known many interesting features in out of the way corners, and to elicit an interest in local antiquities, which has already borne fruit in increased study and better preservation.

The only full and regularly published reports of these meetings are those of The Hampshire Independent, and the republication of these will doubtless be welcomed by many besides members of the Club.
