2 Nicolson, Adam and Morter, Peter Prospects of England - Two Thousand Years Seen Through Twelve English Towns
London Weidenfeld and Nicolson 1989 0297795783 / 9780297795780 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. A large format volume of 160 pages. Travelling together, author Adam Nicolson and illustrator Peter Morter have visited twelve small towns across the breadth of England, from Weymouth on the South coast to Alnwick, almost on the borders of Scotland. Each of these towns 'has enjoyed a moment when it has come into its own, when the forces at work have brought something to fruition and have given the place its enduring personality'. These 'shaping moments' - a different point in history for each successive town - are strung together in the book to form a continuous chain of town life from the planning of Roman Chichester to the radically nostalgic ideals of the Garden City in early 20th century Letchworth. The result is a remarkable portrait of small town England, with the triumphs of provincial architecture, rich with the details of everyday life, both now and in the past, lavishly illustrated with detailed plans and architectural drawings. The towns are Chichester, Sussex; Glastonbury, Somerset; Alnwick, Northumberland; Chipping Camden, Gloucestershire; Woodbridge, Suffolk; Blandford Forum, Dorset; Monmouth, Gwent; Weymouth, Dorset; Buxton, Derbyshire; Whitby, North Yorkshire; Hebden Bridgem West Yorkshire; Letchworth, Hertfordshire. **** A LARGE HEAVY VOLUME OF 1.0 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST ****

3 Nicolson, Adam Restoration - The Rebuilding of Windsor Castle
London Michael Joseph in Association with the Royal Collection 1997 071814192X / 9780718141929 First Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good 
A near Fine copy (fine apart from a very small label removal to front endpaper) with VG dustjacket which is price clipped. 280 pages. Illustrated throughout with plan drawings and colour photographs. Windsor Castle is the oldest continuously occupied palace in the world. As bad luck would have it, the fire that swept through the Castle on 20 November 1992 destroyed or severely damaged nine of the finest state apartments and more than 100 other rooms. In this book Adam Nicolson details the Royal Household's immediate response and the choices that face it: what to restore and how to restore it. As the archaeologcal discoveries during the restoration made clear, few buildings in the world have had so much of such high quality poured into them over so many centuries. PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A HEAVY VOLUME OF 1.28 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST 
Price: 10.00 GBP
