Description - Devon by Rosalind Northcote
Lady Rosalind (Lucy) Northcote (1873-1950) was the British author of: Devon: Its Moorlands, Streams and Coasts (1908/19) "This book does not pretend to include every district. I have merely passed through a great part of the county, stopping here at an old church with interesting monuments, there at a small town whose share in local history-in some instances, in the country's history-is apt to be forgotten, or at a manor-house which should be remembered for its association with one of the many 'worthies' who, as Prince says-with the true impartiality of a West-countryman in regard to his own county-form 'an illustrious troop of heroes, as no other county in the kingdom, no other kingdom (in so small a tract) in Europe, in all respects, is able to match, much less excel.
