Seasonable Weather - Lionel P. SmithGeorge Allen & Unwin, 1968, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper frayed with a triangular tear, and a shorter closed tear, to the head of the upper panel. Price Clipped. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight.
Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The weather is always news. It enters into all our lives and dictates many of our actions. This present volume not only reviews the British weather since 1850, but takes a much wider view of the weather as a whole and of our attitude towards it. Myths and folk lore are analysed in the light of the weather records of the past century, and while many ‘old wives tales’ are shown to be pure fiction, others are seen to contain at least a modicum of truth.
