'When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.' Samuel Johnson (1709-1784) London: An Illustrated Literary Companion, compiled by Rosemary Gray, captures the varying moods of the great city of London over recent centuries, through diary entries, with quotations, poems, essays and extracts from great works written in its honour. It is beautifully illustrated with drawings and engravings from distinguished artists, including Gustave Dore, George Cruikshank, James McNeill Whistler and Hugh Thomson as well as contemporary prints and photographs. 'I don't know what London's coming to - the higher the buildings the lower the morals.' Noel Coward (1899-1973) Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Collector's Library is a series of beautifully bound hardback gift editions of much loved classic titles. Bound in real cloth, printed on high quality paper, and featuring ribbon markers and gilt edges, Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.
Rosemary Gray, who has worked in publishing for many years, has edited a number of collections of short stories, poems and quotations. She is the joint compiler of Limericks in the Collector's Library, The Collector's Library Everlasting Diary and Alice in Wonderland Everlasting Diary.
