M. FRASER.
Somerset. [Foreword by Geoffrey Luttrell]. NEAR FINE COPY
"Great Western Railway, 1934" "8vo., First Edition, with a coloured frontispiece, numerous fine plates toned in sepia and a large folding map coloured in outline; original pictorial wrappers, very light reading creases at backstrip else a near fine copy. The second and largest of Fraser's several publicity pieces commissioned by Grand for the GWR. Fraser, the daughter of GWR publicity agent W H Fraser, was introduced to the company by Felix Pole and made a sizeable contribution to its marketing literature. Conceived initially as a companion to the Mais books on Somerset, this title was suggested by Fraser herself, but in the event it ran to three times the commissioned size. Grand read the MS in a single sitting (on the 10.30 from Paddington) and elected for publication in full. It was issued simultaneously in hardback and paperback; this is the paperback, issued without the trade advertisements present in the clothbound edition. Uncommon in this condition. See Wilson, pp.100-101."
