About This Item

Donington: Shaun Tyas, 2017. Another fasinating book from local historian George Redmonds. In medieval times woodland was an important resource for all communities and industries, so it is frequently found mentioned in historical documents such as charters, but often with a vocabulary that is now difficult to understand. This dictionary provides an extremely useful guide to such terms, which will be welcomed by local and landscape historians in both Yorkshire and the country as a whole (most of the terms are not confined to Yorkshire). From acorn and adze to yew and yholster, the dictionary is solidly based on the author’s detailed knowledge of the Yorkshire sources, from Anglo-Saxon times to the 1800s. Many of the words have far earlier appearances here than those in the OED. Some of the references are to long-vanished practices such as ‘wand-hagger’. Three appendices consider the development of woodland vocabulary in more recent times. Extracts from a timber merchant’s ledger illustrate the survival of many of the phrases into the late nineteenth century. 160pp + 5 maps and 20 colour illustrations.. First Edition. Paperback. Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall.
