A Fine unmarked copy in pictorial laminated boards as dustjacket with VG+ dustjacket which is not price clipped. First edition, first printing. Fred Dibnah won the hearts of millions with his television programmes about his life as a steeplejack, and his passion for the industrial history of Britain. With his trademark flat cap, enthusiasm and knowledge of the country's steam past, his gift for storytelling, and his cry of 'did you like that?' as another giant chimney slid to the earth behind him, he quickly became a genuine favourite with viewers. This is an intimate portrait of Fred, from his childhood to his struggles to make ends meet before becoming an unlikely television personality and eventual holder of an M.B.E. 24 pages of illustrations in colour and black and white.

For a lot of people, their first questions when they visit a great historic building are 'How the heck did they build that all that time ago? How did they manage to lift all that stone and wood up to such a great height?'. In the book we get Fred Dibnah's own inimitable answers to these questions. Using Fred's beautifully executed drawings and his own words, David Hall (Fred's biographer and friend) celebrates Fred's legacy as a passionate advocate for our country's most famous and historic monuments, castles, cathedrals, abbeys, great houses and engineering marvels. **** A LARGE HEAVY VOLUME OF 1.1 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST ****
