Rivers and streams of England - A.G. Bradley, Sutton-Palmer 1909 - A. & C. Black, London - First Edition A lovely account of England’s waterways by historian and author A.G. Bradley, with descriptions of the Wye, the Severn, the rivers of Devon, and the Yorkshire Dales among others, and featuring 75 colour plates illustrated by Sutton Palmer, and with a fold-out map to the rear.   Arthur Granville Bradley (1850-1943) was an English historian, and author of numerous books. After graduating from Trinity College, Cambridge, Bradley spent several years farming in Virginia, before returning to England where he later married, and took up the position of colonial agent in Westminster.

Harry Sutton Palmer (1854-1933) was born in Plymouth, lived in London, and travelled extensively in Scotland, Yorkshire, The Lakes, Surrey and Berkshire. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1870, and various one man shows in London and New York after 1880. Specialising in rural idylls, river scenes and landscapes, Palmer’s paintings have been described as being beautifully observed, if occasionally artificial in mood.
