The Itinerary of John Leland the Antiquary (page 1/12)

[picture: Front Cover, Leland's Itinerary Vol I]

Page images from Volume One of Thomas Hearne’s 1745 edition of the Itinerary of John Leland the Antiquary. There are nine volumes in all. I have scanned all of the pages in volume one that are part of the Itinerary, but not the preface, introductions and other items. The final page has errata.

If you like, you can help this project by emailing me (liam at holoweb dot net) all of the names you see (they are mostly in italics) on any given page, and I will add them so that people can find them more easily. Ideally I’d like to add the modern spellings too. As always, use a subject line like “itinerary 037 socks: green” of “itinerary 037 barefoot” so that you get past my spam filters. I get well over a thousand messages a day.
