Maps to the endpapers. From the cover: “Few will know the full fascinating story of the town Drayneflete. The author has done everything but put this town on the map, and that is scarcely necessary, for every man lives in his own Drayneflete, and will follow with a sense of recognition the changing fortunes of the architectural development from village to city and the way of life and the foibles and fashions of the inhabitants. A humorous send up of the English in society.”
