A brilliant historical novelist, anthologist and memoirist, Peter Vansittart can be looked to for a portrait of his country like no other. It starts in a land as much mythical as real, the Albion of Jack the Giant Killer, Arthur and Merlin, the Green Knight, 'stalking the edges of history'. This poetic or ideal England remains present at one level throughout his account of the more conventional heroes and villains, oppressions and advances in this island. 23. Fine/Near Fine.
