The Survey of Cornwall by Richard Carew, published in 1603, is the first and classic description of Cornwall, The first of two parts describes its landscape, mining, agriculture, fishing, communications, and government, anddiscusses the Cornish people, their speech, customs and recreations. The second part takes us on a tour through the nine hundreds of Cornwall, with particular attention to natural features and curiosities, towns, and gentlemen'sseats.
The Survey gives us both a delightful picture of Tudor Cornwall and an essential resource for studying its history. This edition provides the reader with a facsimile reproduction of Carew's book, together with an introduction explaining his life, work, and importance, and a full index to the contents of the work.
