In the late s, the Essex Institute refined its mission to the collection and presentation of regional art, history and architecture. Essex is a county full of history, variety and also mystery. Throughout the county, we have towns which are as old as the Romans, and towns built less than years ago.

With all this variety, it's understandable that there will be things that just don't fit in. To those who have Essex blood in their veins the county is often little less than a religion The first image from Fred’s book I want to share with you is a map from the inside front page.

It is a pen and ink drawing of the entire county of Essex with Fred’s own tiny caricatures of each town and village he felt worthy of comment.

A splendid compendium of 19th Century erudition, remarkably liberal and modern in some of its viewpoints. Baring-Gould writes a series of essays here on pretty much whatever seems to have caught his interest, ciphers, divination by scripture, the search for a lost vale mentioned in an Icelandic saga, but I liked best his gleanings from ancient and Medieval sources -- the lives of mad saints /5(3).
