Originally published during the early part of the twentieth century, the Cambridge County Geographies were designed to provide a series of concise guides to British regions. Aimed at the general reader, they combined a comprehensive approach to various aspects of physical and human geography with an emphasis on clarity. This guide to Berkshire by H. W. Monckton was first published in 1911. The text is interspersed with numerous illustrative figures and also contains a list of the chief towns and villages within the county.
