The Old inns of England

£14.99

Product description

One of Batsford's British Heritage Series first published in 1934, this is an example of the fifth edition, revised, published in 1948.
Deep red binding with black lettering, slightly bumped on corners, otherwise excellent. The block is tight with only minimal signs of age on text block edges; the book has clear text on clean pages and is well illustrated, mainly with monochrome photographs, maps and Brian Cook's charming pen and ink drawings. The subtly coloured frontispiece of The Spread Eagle, Witham, Essex, is from a watercolour by Randolph Schwabe; there are 2 full pages of colour photographs of Elizabethan wall paintings, circa 1555, from Stratford-on-Avon's White Swan Inn.

Although the dust jacket has suffered some wear, including the section missing at the front top and some small splits on the back, all of which can be seen in the image, Brian Cook's brilliantly colourful design (A. E. Richardson describes the jacket as 'spirited') still sings with colour. The monochrome endpapers are reproduced from coloured prints after James Pollard.
