9780197264546: The Chronicles of John Cannon, Excise Officer and Writing Master, Part 1: 1684-1733 (Somerset, Oxfordshire, Berkshire) (Records of Social and Economic History)

John Cannon, known to some as "the poor man's Pepys," was the self-taught son of a Somerset farmer. Though some episodes in Cannon's life have been partially drawn upon in other studies, this edition is the first full scale study enabling Cannon and his world to be understood in their entirety.

The manuscript he wrote over nearly 60 years offers a remarkably candid autobiography, crowded with people of all ranks in hundreds of different places, roles and occupations. His Chronicles also record virtually all aspects of change, at a social level seldom so continuously documented in any period, as they were experienced and observed in significant regions of the country, during a crucial span of British history.

Part 1 includes Cannon's unique personal account of Country Excise, in the Thames Valley, and back in Somerset. The extended Introduction places Cannon and his Chronicles in all their contexts. (Part 2 covers the period 1734-1743.)

About the Author:


John Money is Professor Emeritus at the University of Victoria in Canada.

Review:

The "Chronicles" provide not just a remarkable insight into the material, mental and moral world of one individual, but also of the period in which he lived... an incredibly rich source, and the British Academy and the Oxford University Press are to be congratulated for making this superb edition of it available. Equally, John Money is to be thanked for his massively erudite, at appropriate points witty, and unfailingly sympathetic editorial work. * James Sharpe, Times Literary Supplement *
