Westminster Wader - Published in 1957

£17.99

Product description

Subtitled: 'Being an Estimate of Westminster in All Ages, by One who Longs for Muddy Water, and the Return of the Bittern to London Fen'.

Hardback with unclipped dust jacket.

From the dust jacket blurb, 'Enchanting to read, impossible to describe, Westminster Wader celebrates a number of themes very close to Lord Noel-Buxton's heart. London and London's roads and, above all London's river; fords and fording and small boats and marshes and muddy water; the open spaces of the Commonwealth and the crowded spaces of England; the splendours and miseries of being a member of the House of Lords - and in particular of being a second-generation, right-wing Labour peer.'

In Good to Very Good condition. The dust jacket is bright and clean, slightly yellowed on the spine with only light wear. Clean boards and pages with a sound binding.
