The Romance of the Men of Devon

By Francis Gribble

London: Mills and Boon Limited (1912)

Indexed by Michael Steer

In his preface the author states "at no epoch at which adequate records have been preserved do we find Devonian names lacking. England owes to Devon the invention of the steam engine as well as the repulse of the Spanish Armada; the launching of the Tractarian Movement as well as the colonization of Newfoundland, and the discovery of Davis Straights. Devonshire has produced a poet of the first rank in Coleridge, and a painter of the first rank in Sir Joshua Reynolds; elegant literary triflers in the person of Tom Durfey and Winthrop Mackworth Praed; a great historian in James Anthony Froud; and a great novelist in Richard Doddridge Blackmore. The object (of the book) has been to select for treatment those names which are most typical, most interesting, most provocative of curiosity (p. viii). This is an engaging, entertaining book, full of anecdotes and humorous stories."
