The Companion to British History. Charles Arnold-Baker.

The Companion to British History.

Tunbridge Wells: Longcross Press, 1996. 8vo. First edition. Original black cloth, lettered in gilt. D/w slightly faded on spine. Fine in near fine dust-wrapper. Item #4727

The first edition of this idiosyncratic but authoritative companion. 'Perhaps the last one-man reference work in the tradition of Dr Johnson.' I remember the late Simon Hoggart popping in to Heywood Hill to pick up a copy (it had a very limited distribution initially) and coinciding with a power cut. The sale was negotiated by candlelight, much to his delight.

Price: £35.00
