The Cambridge Region
H. C. Darby
Cambridge University Press, Jan 3, 2013 - History - 250 pages
Originally published in 1938, this survey of the district of Cambridge was written mainly in terms of the two administrative counties of Cambridge and the Isle of Ely. The survey was prepared, in the first instance, for the Cambridge Meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science and was presented by the syndics of Cambridge University Press to members attending the Meeting. The text provides a broad overview of physical and human geography within the Cambridge area. Numerous maps and diagrams are also included, together with an index of place names. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in regional geography and historical geography.
