The English Lakes (Memories of Times Past)

The English Lakes (Memories of Times Past)

by Bill Birkett (Author), JaneRenouf (Author), Colin Inman (Author), RosemaryAnderson (Author), Alfred Heaton Cooper (Author)


This beautiful and informative volume, inspired by the pioneering 1906 A&C Black book "The English Lakes", offers a new way of looking at the landscape and social history of a much-loved region. Every painting from the original book has been rescanned and enlarged, presenting them as they have not been seen for a hundred years. Opposite each painting is a page containing full-colour images relating to the painting, from period maps and postcards to paintings and railway tickets, together with a text placing the painting in its contemporary context.
