Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Excerpt from Hawkshead: The Northernmost Parish of Lancashire Its History, Archaeology, Industries, Folklore, Dialect, Etc., Etc When you take up this volume you are asked to bear in mind that rural England is changing very fast; that ever since the first steam locomotive started on its smoky journey, the doom of Old fashions, old industries, and old ideas was sealed. How radical these changes have been, and how relentless is the impulse which is effacing the Old world colouring of rural life, only those who care to hold back the falling curtain can really tell. These are the extenuating circumstances I dare to urge for writing a volume of 564 pages devoted to a single north country parish. For, though changes have come, and though signs are not wanting that greater changes are at hand, Hawkshead is still a relic of the older England. It is like an ancient painting which the brush of the tasteless restorer has just touched. A little time and he will paint out the mellowed tints. But, meanwhile, let us replace it in its frame and hang it reverently against the wall. Making an afternoon call recently beyond the great pool of Windermere, my fair hostess courteously en quired as to the progress of the present work. Ere I could reply, a lady guest (a woman, in the words of Mr. Punch, essentially of the nineteenth century) struck in.

Originally published in 1920, this book contains the annotated account book of Sarah Fell, the step-daughter of George Fox, the founder of Quakerism. Fell kept the family accounts in this book from 1673 to 1678, and the result is an interesting look into the economy of a gentleman's household immediately following the Restoration, as well as evidence of the role played by women in household management. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in daily life in the late seventeenth century.
