London England, B. T. Bastford, 1982. Reprint, Binding: Cloth, Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 0713400765 Hardback Hardback. Ex-libris name sticker to inside cover. Stratford-upon-Avon, Compton Wynyates, Kenilworth Castle, Henly-in-Arden, Ragley Hall, Warwick: these are the places traditionally associated with Warwickshire. Yet the author shows in this book, the country has much more to offer than the ordinary tourist ever sees. It is as much the biographical and historical association, however, as the purely topographical aspects of the county with which Mr. Bird is here concerned: Dr. Jephson and Leamington's rise as a spa; the Civil War battle at Edgehill; the royal visits, as expensive as they were honourable to the hosts, in particular Queen Elizabeth I's to Kenilworth; and a list of worthies which is diverse and distinguished, and includes Shakespeare of course, Joseph Arch, Michael Drayton, Piers Gaveston, Thomas Arnold, Keith Holyoake, Arthur Hugh Clough, and Rupert Brooke. With its 31 excellent illustrations and map this is an originaly and delightful contribution to the bibliography of Warwickshire. Illustrated. 216 pp.
