John Leland's Itinerary - Travels in Tudor Englands - by John Chandler.
This work would be invaluable to anyone who is interested in
local history or in Tudor history. John Leland was a Tudor scholar who
traveled all over England in the 1530s and 1540s, recording stories and
facts about the places he visited. He notes observations on the economy
and social life of the places he visited and also noted down local legends,
such as links to Arthurian sites. In this edition of Leland's itinerary
John Chandler translates the text into modern English and puts it into
order. He also presents the text with numerous illustrations and shows
the county maps of the Tudor cartographer Christopher Saxton.
