Chiefly by Batsford, with contributions by staff members. "This untidy, genial, composite, effective, very English book about a business to which all these adjectives seem to apply . . . [It is] a historical sketch of the writing and publishing of English books about architecture and other arts and crafts; it is a fond look backward over old London, old ways, old buildings and old characters . . . [an] admirable example of English book production."--TLS. Can be sent outside the US for less than the default shipping rate.
