The wide scope of this book, covering every Wessex place-name mentioned in Hardy's prose or verse and known or believed to have a basis in fact, therefore provides a most original picture of this part of England., both as it is today, and as it was a century ago.

This was the first comprehensive survey of the Hardy country to be published for over fifty years. It was a completely new appreciation based on a fresh study of the evidence to be found in Hardy's works and on extensive research among diaries, letters, estate records and topographical writings. The book is illustrated with drawings and photographs of scenes not previously illustrated, and with new maps. The d/w is lightly creased on its extremities. A good, tight book. View more info
