Shelves: nonfiction, england
Excellent, beautifully written, evocative encyclopedia of things particularly English. The focus is mostly on old things rather than on contemporary life.

I liked the content very much but the layout and typography left a lot to be desired for readability and I could only dip in and out of the book.

c2006. Took the recommendation from a list of best books but I can't remember which list. Very interesting book that answered some questions that had been bugging me for ages. Whether or not I will be able to retain this information remains to be seen but some interesting fact may pop up during a random ramble. Would be a keeper. Fairly short entries which makes it easy to pick up and put down etc..
