In his latest book on the county, Stan Beckensall explores what place names and field names mean, and how they can reveal an intimate part of our local history by linking us to the land they sign and socialise. Northumberland has a rich legacy of such names which can best be appreciated by close familiarity with the landscape. If you find these examples intriguing, you will enjoy the book: Grimping Haugh, Jill's Arse, Little Sloshes, Boggle Hole, Shovelbread and Blowbutts. The text explores a series of sites which demonstrate how place names are derived, and change over time. This study is well supported by a wide range of illustrations ranging from photographs and documents to maps. The detailed research undertaken by the author helps to ensure this is a comprehensive guide to the origins of places within Northumberland.

More than fifty specialists have contributed to this new edition of volume 1 of The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature. The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.
