R W Baker was the most important and influential improver of agriculture in Rutland in the early nineteenth century, a period of rapid agricultural change. As estate steward for Sir Noel Noel Bt he became a leading breeder of Shorthorn cattle, winning many medals and prizes. He helped to found the Rutland Agricultural Society, designed an improved type of plough, set up ploughing meetings, introduced spade allotments, and endeavoured to improve the lot of poor farmer labourers. This biography by Vanessa Doe celebrates his achievements and demonstrates the profound effect he had on many aspects of rural life in the county. Paperback, Crown 4to, viii + 128pp, 71 illustrations.
