by F. J. Snell
Frederick John Snell (1862-1935) was a prolific British writer and artist whose numerous books and articles reflected an enthusiasm for British history. He wrote under the names F. J. Snell and F. J. S. Some of his books include The Age of Alfred (1912), A Book of Exmoor (1903), and The Customs of Old England (1911). The Blackmore Country highlights Snell’s interests in literature and history, as he successfully unfolds the convoluted and complicated tale of the Blackmore Family and the geography that binds them together.
This edition is dedicated to Emma Norman, whose interested in British history is infectious.
