"John Aubrey and the Advancement of Learning" by William Poole is the accompanying book to the John Aubrey Exhibition at the Bodleian Library in Oxford.

The exhibition runs till 31st October and is highly recommended. John Aubrey is sometimes described as the 'first antiquarian' - famous for visiting (and drawing) Stonehenge and Avebury; he also managed to get to Boscawen-un, Stanton Drew, the Rollrights and Castlerigg - quite a feat when you remember the only form of cross country transport was walking or horsepower.

The book can be obtained at the exhibition and retails around £25
