⁂ Of Blaikie, Fussell says "His tracts deal with the minutiae of the subject, odd but important details of management and technique, such things as must have occupied him while carrying out his day to day duties." Blaikie managed the estate at Holkham for a number of years, hence the inclusion of Rigby's work in this collection of pamphlets.
