HADFIELD, JOHN
A Book of Britain - an Anthology in Words and Pictures
London, Hulton Press. 1959. Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A near Fine clean, tight and unmarked copy with near Fine dustjacket which is price clipped. Third impression (first was1956). 255 pages. Pictorial endpapers. Full page plate illustrations throughout. Let no one assume from the title that it is yet 'another of the same' anthology of poetry - readers will look in vain for Wordsworth's daffodils, views of Windsor Castle, or solemn appraisals of the British way of life - this is a highly personal book. It is a long time since an anthology on a popular subject brought together so much fresh and delightfully unusual material. From the 17th century mystical poet Quarles (on bowls) to Dylan Thomas (on Bank Holidays). The choice of illustrations range from 15th century woodcarving to L.S. Lowry, and also show the same disregard for conventional tastes. 'It is superbly good' said John Betjeman. A pure delight! 303. Near Fine/Near Fine.

This is Christopher Middleton's fifth book of poems. It includes his two pamphlets 'The Fossil Fish' (1970) and ' Briefcase History' (1972). Widely translated into other languages, Middleton's poems contain a variability factor which his English critics have been apt to misconstrue. His poems are crystallizations of complex passions or explorations of perceptual and imaginative experience happening at once on several linguistic levels. Many of the poems in this collection explore the experience of time. All evoke alternative universes. 101. Fine/Near Fine.
