Holkham, its agriculture, &c … The third edition, considerably enlarged
Norwich: printed by Burks and Kinnebrook, for R. Hunter. 1818. 8vo, vi + 140 + (2)pp, complete with the final errata/advertisement leaf, original plain wrappers, uncut, worn. A good copy inscribed in ink by the author on upper cover. Perkins 1449. Rothamsted (1940) p.127. Goldsmiths 22049. Black 3095. Kress C.155. Noteworthy as one of the few contemporary accounts of Coke's regime at Holkham. This third edition includes at the end (pp.123 et seq.) some critical comments on Malthus (Rigby had just read the 5th edition of Population>) and Ogilvie (Rigby had twice read his Essay on the Right of Property in Land>). It makes interesting reading. Edward Rigby (1747-1821), although a physician by profession, was also an enthusiastic farmer and a friend of Thomas Coke of Holkham, afterwards Earl of Leicester. He in fact farmed his own land at Framingham where he successfully applied the Holkham system on a rather more modest scale.
