Dartmoor (Hardcover)

Dartmoor (Hardcover) - Arthur Leslie Salmon,  Ernest Haslehust A short gazetteer dating presumably from the 1930s - a written dedication in my copy is from 1937. It combines dryish descriptions of Dartmoor towns and sceneries with bits of local history and folklore. It would be interesting to see how much of it would be valid today. Also nice are the dozen vivid watercolours of landscapes, bridges, and stone circles.
