Description - Tweddell describes the work as kind of 'Cyclopedia' of Poets and Prose writers from Cleveland and South Durham from Caedmon's time up until the 1860's often with woodcuts of the authors and others by Bewick. Contains extracts from their writings along with Tweddell's commentary on their work and lives. Tweddell challanges a few ideas such as the birth place / residence of John Gower (the Moral) which he claims was in Stittenham and Sexhow (Nr Stokesley) rather than Cantebury or elsewhere.
