The Shell Country Alphabet by Geoffrey Grigson

The Shell Country Alphabet by Geoffrey Grigson hits the £1 shelf in my shop.

Michael Joseph, 1966, Hardback.

Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Plates; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: In the 1960s, Geoffrey Grigson travelled around England writing the story of the secret landscape that is all around us, if only we take the time to look and see. The result is a book that will take you on an imaginative journey, revealing hidden stories, unexpected places and strange phenomena. From green men, ice-scratches, cross-legged knights and weathercocks to rainbows, clouds and stars; from place-names and poets to mazes, dene-holes and sham ruins, via avenues, dewponds and village greens, The Shell Country Alphabet will help you discover the world that remains, just off the motorway.

Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Gently faded at the spine which has a single crease running the full length. Tape offset to both boards. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight.

Pictorial boards.
