A Book of Britain  -  An Anthology in Words and Pictures, Hadfield, John
17 Hadfield, John A Book of Britain - An Anthology in Words and Pictures
London Hulton Press 1959 Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
A near Fine clean, tight and unmarked copy with near Fine dustjacket which is price clipped. Third impression (first was1956). 255 pages. Pictorial endpapers. Full page plate illustrations throughout. Let no one assume from the title that it is yet 'another of the same' anthology of poetry - readers will look in vain for Wordsworth's daffodils, views of Windsor Castle, or solemn appraisals of the British way of life - this is a highly personal book. It is a long time since an anthology on a popular subject brought together so much fresh and delightfully unusual material. From the 17th century mystical poet Quarles (on bowls) to Dylan Thomas (on Bank Holidays). The choice of illustrations range from 15th century woodcarving to L.S. Lowry, and also show the same disregard for conventional tastes. 'It is superbly good' said John Betjeman. A pure delight!
