It is a product of a period of revolution in the ideas and habits of English landowners. ... Mr Brown's book offers minute and ample answers to every possible inquiry which the landowner's ingenuity can suggest.”

Indeed there is not a chapter from which any reader may not gain something. . . . It is impossible even to glance at a tithe of the useful information and advice contained in this volume, which will be certain to be the landlord and the agent's vade-mecum.”
