Graham York Rare Books
225 High Street, Honiton, Devon, EX14 1LB, UK.
"Honiton stands near a small river called the Otter, at the distance of 155 miles from London, and in the road from London to Exeter...It is situated in the best and most pleasant part of the whole county, abounding with corn and pasture, and commanding a view of the adjacent country, which is perhaps the most beautiful landscape in the world. It has a bridge over the Otter, and is a populous well-built town, consisting chiefly of one long street, remarkably well paved with pebbles, through which runs a small channel of clear water, with a little square dripping place at every door". [Text from "A New Display of the Beauties of England", 1776; Photograph from an anonymous album of images of Britain, circa 1875. Both items from stock].
