Alan Ball, librarian of Harrow, has written many books on his local area. This one is a lovely collection of drawings, plans, prints and paintings from the Library's archives, covering Harrow, Pinner, Stanmore and other former villages now part of Harrow. Some are of historical interest, others, like the Cotman illustrated are very beautiful. Book, large format with card covers, has a drawing of a Tudor style house on front and back. It is signed by the author. Condition is good plus - binding tight, contents unmarked, card cover and page corners show signs of use. Small smudge on front cover, spine faded.
