History of the Worthies of England

The major part of this 1840 updated publication of a work originally published in 1662, is a county by county recounting of the natural commodities, industry, prominent buildings and men of the county. To say its eclectic would be to do it an injustice. The three volume set is now digitized in the Canadian Libraries series from copies held at the John M Kelly Library of the University of Toronto .

Berkshire - Gloucestershire
Hampshire - Nottinghamshire
Oxfordshire - Yorkshire, and Wales
