Memorials Of Old Hampshire

From the text: The oldest existing perambulation of the New Forest, made in 1280, shows the bounds to be east and west, the Southampton river and the Avon; south, the sea-coast; north, the line running east and west from Owerbridge to North Charford. This detail is preserved in the Chapter House of Westminster.

The officers of the Forest ranged from the Lord Warden and his lieutenant to a verminer and sub-verminer, between whom came a riding forester, a bow-bearer, two rangers, two woodwards, four verderers, two stewards, twelve regarders, nine foresters or master-keepers, and thirteen (originally fifteen) under-foresters or groomkeepers.

Our Woodland Trees

Francis George Heath (1843 to 1913)

From the author: The first part of this volume has been written in order to supply what the Author believes to be essential as an introduction to a study of Forest Trees.

The second part aims to enkindle the love of Nature, which the Author is convinced is in the hearts of his readers. At the same time it is intended to convey pleasantly nay, lovingly, as much information relating to its subject as people who lead busy lives are likely to have time to acquire.

Remarks On Forest Scenery And Other Woodland Views Volume 1 (Revised)

William Gilpin (1724 to 1804).

During summer months, Gilpin travelled around the country, making watercolours and keeping journals in which he crystallised his personal theories about picturesque landscapes. 

Editor's Preface: In illustrating the present edition of the Forelt Sceneery, it has been our endeavour to interfere as little as possible with the arrangement originally adopted by Mr Gilpin. We have therefore considered it best to introduce each respective portion of our observations immediately after the original matter to which it refers and to distinguish our remarka the more perfectly. The reader will observe that they are printed in a smaller type than those of Mr Gilpin.

Whilst we have retained the most essential of Mr Gilpin's delineations, we have deemed it advisable to change, or to improve, several of them. A number of illustrations have been added from original sketches, by Mr Kidd and Mr For bes, both of them celebrated artists in their respective departments, whose labours, we trust, will be found to have considerably improved the value of Mr Gilpin's book.
