map to rear cover; From the author’s introduction: “I have used Rupert Brooke's beautiful poem 'The Old Vicarage, Grantchester,' as an excuse to visit and explore all the places he mentioned. Great changes have, of course, taken place since his time, but much of the beauty remains which I have tried to capture in the drawings. This most enjoyable of tasks has led me along quiet footpaths, around historic mansions, into quaint cottages and ancient, yet active churches. If I am honest, I must admit that my native Cambridgeshire does not possess the scenic beauty of many counties, especially those in the west and north, yet there is beauty here and an abundance of interest. You will have to seek it out though, and this is best done on foot. I have therefore mentioned the more interesting footpaths leading to and from each village. To those of you who are residents of the villages, do not be dismayed by Rupert Brooke's comments. He was only joking, or perhaps belittling neighbouring villages to highlight the Grantchester which he loved. He wrote the names to be used in his poem in the margin of a letter, and may not even have visited all the places mentioned. Despite the passing of the years and the noisy, bustling age in which we live 'There is Beauty yet to find.' May you enjoy the search.” Size: Oblong 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. unpaginated.
