Growth of interest in the periodical literature of the past has emphasized increasingly the need for specialized hand lists, a need which the American Union List of Serials, the British Union Catalogue of the Periodical Publications in the University Libraries of the British Isles, and other existing indexes cannot answer. To satisfy one area of this need, William S. Ward has compiled a near-definitive index and finding list of periodicals and newspapers of the English Romantic period. In it are reflected the holdings of almost eleven hundred American, Canadian, and British libraries and newspaper offices. The volume is also the first to list titles and library locations of all the newspapers, magazines, and other serials published in the British Isles during the years between the French Revolution and the Great Reform Bill.

Researching Human Geography is an essential new text for any geography student about to embark on a research project. An understanding of how different theories of knowledge have influenced research methodologies is crucial in planning and designing effective research; this book makes this link clear and explores how various philosophical positions, from positivism to post-structuralism, have become associated with particular methodologies. The book gives an overview of a wide range of methods and data collection, both quantitative and qualitative, and explores their strengths and weaknesses for different kinds of research. 'Researching Human Geography' also looks at the various techniques available for the analysis of data, which is presented as an integral and ongoing part of the research process. Clearly written, with extensive use of examples from previous research to show 'methodology in action', this new text is an invaluable addition to both the theory and method of research in human geography.

This book provides the first comprehensive biographical account of the Third Earl of Rosse. A remarkable man, he was a resident landlord and a key member of the Protestant ascendancy in nineteenth-century Ireland before, during and after the devastating Irish famine of the 1840s. He has received lasting fame as the builder of Birr Castle in County Offaly, where he constructed enormous reflecting telescopes which allowed the recognition for the first time of the spiral shape of some galaxies. As well as giving a comprehensive account of the engineering genius the astronomical achievements of the Earl and his assistants, the book reveals new details about his other key roles, not only in the local community at Birr, but in the Royal Society, of which he was president from 1848-54, in the British Association for the Advancement of Science, and in various political and administrative structures in Ireland. This volume also sheds new light on the family life of the Earl and Countess, whose children included Sir Charles Parsons, the inventor of the steam turbine engine, which revolutionised electricity generation and marine transport. The Countess' own pioneering achievements in photography are detailed here alongside reproductions of her work. With chapters from an international selection of distinguished contributors, this book will interest a wide readership, particularly historians of nineteenth-century British and Irish science, astronomy and photography, and those studying nineteenth-century Irish history.

Toupie Lowther appears as a walk-on character in many biographies of Radclyffe Hall and Una Troubridge. In the years after WW1 she is invariably identified as a "Lady Barbara Lowther", however a quick look in Debrett's peerage will bring no further enlightenment. But now identified by the author as May Lowther b. 15th April 1874, the writer of this biography has been able to uncover much more of her family as well as her active and sporting life. Her father's illegitimate birth, his naval career and marriage to a Canadian young woman. Her brother Claude Lowther of Herstmonceux Castle and "Lowther's Lambs" fame in WW1. As a young woman fencer in the early years of the 20th century and later as a popular tennis player both at home and in European tournaments, the newspapers readily report her achievements. Often with brief mentions of her sophisticated musical talent and well known passion for fast cars. Towards the end of WW1 the Hackett-Loather all Women Ambulance Unit, attached to the French army, remains unique in European history: the women drivers serving both day and night under shellfire, gas and bomb during the German Advance of 1918. After the war a later friendship with the writer Radcliffe Hall and her partner Una Troubridge takes her on a round of clubbing and rubbing in a post war lesbian and gay London: this friendship was strangled forever after the publication of Hall's novel "The Well of Loneliness": its fiction clearly borrowed rather than invented. Her later life sees her away from London: making a new life with her goddaughter in the fine countryside of West Sussex.
