Description: London: Rivingtons, 1937. 1st Edition. Paperback. 11.5x17cm. "This anthology is a companion volume to my Poems of Six Centuries. By means of seventy illustrative passages of both historic and intrinsic value and five brief introductions, I have tried to show the development of English prose during the past five hundred years and more. There are obvious omissions, but there would still be such were the volume twice the size." Limp red cloth covers, black title to front and dulled spine, rear lower corner creased, ends of spine slightly fraying; previous owners' names to front inside cover and endpaper (bearing adverts for other books), stamp on title page reads SPECIMEN PUBLISHED PRICE 2/6, content clean and bright. Features too many authors to list here, but includes, Mandeville, Berners, Bacon, Milton, Pepys, Sprat, Addison, Walpole, Fielding, Gibbon, Austen, Shelley, Dickens, Hardy, Dugaid and Maugham.. Good to Very Good .
