'As documentation on landed society,' writes Ginter, 'the land tax is both daunting and seductive.' As a corrective to the 'magnitudes of error' in historians' analytical use of land tax, Ginter offers a magisterial analysis of land tax duplicates, primarily for the years 1780 to 1832, and shows how, with correct interpretation, they can be an invaluable source of documentation on landholding in Britain.
