Guide to District of the Lakes

£19.99

Product description

The full title of this book is "A Guide Through the District of The Lakes in the North of England" . The guide was originally written in 1810 and was published anonymously though it was written by William Wordsworth. The Guide is multi-faceted. It is a guide, but it is also a prose-poem about light, shapes, and textures, about movement and stillness ... It is a paean to a way of life, but also a lament for the inevitability of its passing ... What holds this diversity together is the voice of complete authority, compounded from experience, intense observation, thought, and love

This edition is a facsimile of the definitive fifth edition published in 1835 and was published circa 1948; the map is missing.
