In mid-nineteenth century, Devon and Suffolk were both agricultural counties and yet the level of literacy differed considerably between them. This book undertakes an investigation of literacy both between and within the two counties and in the process attempts to resolve why Devon was so much more literate than Suffolk. This study of the complicated set of causes for the growth of literacy breaks new ground in a great contemporary importance. Although it gives few conclusive answers it does demonstrate how this neglected subject of literacy should be done in the future.
