This volume contains a detailed listing of over 60 maps and surveys, 24 illustrations of maps, abstracts of three substantial surveys of Acland properties in Devon, Somerset and Cornwall, and an abstract of correspondence between the Aclands and Alexander Law, one of the principal surveyors used by the family. It shows the commissioning of maps by one aristocratic family and expands our knowledge of the relationship between patrons and those who drew the maps and executed the surveys for them. The volume provides an invaluable source for family and local historians in Devon, Somerset and Cornwall, as well as those interested in the history of agriculture and of the landscape.
