Glamorgan County History

Nature volume 139, page 307 (20 February 1937) | Download Citation



THIS handsome and well-produced volume is the first instalment of a projected history of the county of Glamorgan which was initiated in 1930 by the Lord Lieutenant of the County, the Earl of Plymouth. It is intended to cover the scientific interest of the county, and includes sections on the geology, climate and meteorology, soils, botany and zoology, written by voluntary workers, the whole being edited by Prof. W. M. Tattersall, professor of zoology and comparative anatomy in University College, Cardiff. This volume is to be followed by five others covering the industries, archaeology, and ecclesiastical, political, economic and parochial history of Glamorgan. The scheme adopted is more or less that of the “Victoria County History”, but the material of future volumes will be treated chronologically as a whole, and not as separate sections.
