Illustrated / decorative end papers. Illustrated with B&W photographs and drawings. From the cover: “What is it that invests certain places with particular significance for an individual? What magic, or what associations, does a landscape or a building hold that sets it apart from others? For this anthology, the distinguished author Ronald Blythe has asked over forty writers to write about a place in the British Isles that has special meaning for them. The result is a richly evocative collection of essays and poems that gives us an insight into the susceptibilities of the authors as well as a greater appreciation of the scenery around us. The book is beautifully illustrated with water-colours, gouaches and photographs.”
