Publisher: Project Gutenberg 2010
Number of pages: 274
This work enumerated England's geographic, economic, social, religious and political features and represents an important source for historians interested in life in Elizabethan England. Harrison gathered his facts from books, letters, maps, the notes of John Leland, and conversations with antiquaries and local historians like his friends John Stow and William Camden. He also used his own observation, experience and wit, and wrote in a conversational tone without pedantry, which has made the work a classic.
