Dealer Notes
ODNB ‘... The wealth of information contained in the first edition of Hutchins's History, including detailed pedigrees of gentry families, histories of estates, religious houses, parish churches, towns, and villages, together with the numerous illustrations and extracts from documentary sources, ensured that the book was well received, and a second edition was soon planned ... The third edition is the fullest and most reliable, containing many additions on the antiquities, archaeology, and social and economic history of the county. It also includes numerous new illustrations, plans, references, and extracts from documentary sources, reflecting the growing interest in these aspects of local history. Hutchins's History of Dorset became and has remained an indispensable reference book and the essential starting point for any historical study of Dorset ...’
