The Tenure of Agricultural Land by C. S. Orwin, W. R. Peel

First published in 1926, as the second edition of a 1925 original, this book was created in response to the agricultural crisis caused by the collapse of the traditional English land ownership system. Whilst the text is not hostile to rural landowners, and aims to serve 'no political ends', it puts forward a solution based on the state ownership of land. This is presented as a route to economic stability following the break-up of so many rural estates owing to financial difficulties. Notes are incorporated throughout. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in British agriculture and the history of land ownership.
