W. Prince's 'Worthies of Devon' and the Dictionary of National Biography, Part I

Trans. Devon Assoc., vol. 17 (1885), pp. 199-214.


W. Pengelly

Prepared by Michael Steer

The paper, presented at the Association's 1885 Seaton meeting is first in a series providing notes on Devon celebrities whose names appear either in Prince, or in the earliest volumes of the Dictionary of National Biography, or in both. This first part introduces the collection from Acland (1) to Badcock (17). The author has used a system of abbreviations to identify the sources for each of the entries. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. The Internet Archive makes available, in its Community Texts Collection (originally known as Open Source Books), books that have been digitised by Google from a number of libraries. These are books on which copyright has expired, and are available free for educational and research use. This rare book was produced from a copy held by the University of Michigan Library, and is available from the Internet Archive.
