It was a long and fraught process, but by 2006, 35 folds had been completed and these form the core of Enclosure.

1092. Nature's Engraver
Jenny Uglow
At the end of the eighteenth-century Britain fell in love with nature.

In this superbly illustrated biography, Jenny Uglow tells a story of violent change, radical politics, lost ways of life and the beauty of the wild - a journey to the beginning of our lasting obsession with the natural world. . . . more
