P.D.A. Harvey is a historian of medieval rural England with a wide interest in the history of cartography; this collection of his essays brings together both these strands. It first looks at the English countryside from the 10th century to the 15th, investigating problems in particular documents, in the village community and in underlying long-term changes. How landlords drew profits from their property in the eleventh and twelfth centuries, how and why there followed changes in the way landed estates were run and in the written records they produced, what new light their personal seals can throw on medieval peasants, are all among the topics discussed, while the local management of large estates and the development of the peasant land market are themes that recur throughout. There follow essays on the way maps were brought into the management of landed estates in the 16th and 17th centuries, starting with the introduction of consistent scale into mapping, a new concept crucially important in the general history of topographical maps. The collection closes by looking at some of the traps that both documents and maps set for the historian of the English countryside.

P.D.A. Harvey is a Professor Emeritus in the Department of History at Durham University, UK.

Review:

'Manors and Maps is a fitting testament to the oeuvre of Professor Harvey and is recommended to any serious scholar of medieval and early modern English history and cartography.' IMCoS Journal 'All of the essays brought together in this collection are masterpieces that will stand the test of time, and each is a delight to read, expressed in clear, jargon-free prose, of a kind all too rare in academic writing today.' Nigel Saul, Economic History Review
