The Return of Owners of Land, 1873 presents the first complete picture of the distribution of landed property in the British Isles[1] since the original Domesday Book dating from 1086. The 1873 Return is also sometimes referred to as the "Modern Domesday".[2] It arose from the desire of the Victorian governing landed classes, many of whom sat in the House of Lords, to counter the rising public clamour encouraged by some parts of the press about what was called the "monopoly of land." Karl Marx (d.1883) had been resident in London since 1849 and had published his Capital in 1867 thus influencing political thought on the Continent and consequently prompting a concerned British Establishment to rapidly extinguish any spark of revolutionary sentiment in the United Kingdom.

Many perceived exaggerations and false assertions had been made by the opponents of the landed classes as to the over-concentration of land ownership within a ruling elite, and reliable and independent data was needed to refute the attacks. The question was put in the House of Lords on 19 February 1872 by Edward Stanley, 15th Earl of Derby (1826–1893) to the Lord Privy Seal "Whether it was the intention of Her Majesty's Government to take any steps for ascertaining the number of proprietors of land and houses in the United Kingdom, with the quantity of land owned by each proprietor". The government was in agreement with the suggestion and indeed Lord Derby's question had been a mere pre-arranged formality to start the process.

His source for the data was the government produced survey Return of Owners of Land, 1873, often known as the Modern Domesday Book, the many errors in which he revised and corrected. The preface to his work sets out many of the criticisms of the original 1873 Return and identifies some of the commonest errors contained in it.

This was republished in 1971 by the Leicester University Press, New York. It used text from the 1883 edition (the fourth and last), and had an introduction by David Spring
