Scope and Content
Maton, W. G. Observations relative chiefly to the natural history, picturesque scenery and antiquities of the western counties of England. Salisbury and London: J.Easton, 1797. pp. 282-3.It [Mount Edgecombe] commands a view almost unparalleled for variety and magnificence of objects. In front, the town and harbour of Plymouth present themselves; a little to the left, the dock-yards, the fortifications that surround them, ships of various dimensions sailing and out of the Tamar, and the distant banks of that river; to the right, a broad sweep of the Channel, and several bold headlands starting from the coast; whilst more immediately under the eye appears a fine declivity richly planted, and ornamented with temples, statues, and fountains.[Text may be taken from a different source or edition than that listed as the source by Somers Cocks.]
