Signed by the author on small plate to ffep - 'To Nancy Williamson - Happy armchair walking with best wishes from Christopher Summerville. 7th November 1991' - unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Around the shores of Britain stretch a range of large and small coastal communities - varying from bright, traditional resorts like Blackpool and Ramsgate to elegant old watering-holes like Scarborough and Tenby, and from fishing villages to industrial townships. This rich variety is reflected in Britain Beside the Sea, a fresh and vivid reminder that living by the sea may be occupationally bracing as well as therapeutically peaceful. Its affectionate portrayal of over thirty shoreline settlements in England, Scotland and Wales, laced with historical anecdotes, will encourage many readers to set out on their own journey of rediscovery.
