Writer who compiled Highways & Byways in Devon & Cornwall (Macmillan & Co, illustrated by Joseph PENNELL and Hugh THOMPSON). Chapter XVII is about the Penzance to Land's End area and around the coast to Zennor and St Ives Bay. The illustrations are in the form of sketches and line drawings, and include the standard sights of St. Michael's Mount, a panoramic view over Penzance, Market Jew Street, Newlyn backstreets and rocky promontories around Land's End, finishing with a sketch of boats in the bay of St Ives (but no mention of artists there). The author makes the striking statement (p 297) 'there is not much to say about Penzance; while the settlement of certain distinguished artists at Newlyn has made that little fishy town as familiar as Kensington.'
