Written between the years 1700 and 1706, Richard Gough's history of Myddle in Shropshire is a biographical profile of a complete village during the 17th century. Gough wrote brief biographies of many of the people living in the village, derived from his own personal experience and observation spanning the period from the civil war up to the beginning of the 18th century. The present edition is introduced by Dr Peter Razell, with a text which has been edited and modernized so as to eliminate material of purely antiquarian interest. This newly-set edition may be of interest to social historians, sociologists and the general reading public.
