From the cover: “Wiltshire is a county towards which strangers have always seemed to me to cultivate a quite peculiar vagueness, sometimes even as regards its position on the map of England. Till the advent of the motor reopened, so to speak, the Bath Road, promoting such familiarity as the motorist may or may not achieve, and the military annexed a comer of Salisbury Plain, very few strangers, save antiquarians, took much notice of a county which the Royal and noble sportsmen of the middle ages and ensuing periods held in such pre-eminent esteem.”
