1097. Fellwalking With Wainwright
Derry Brabbs
For this new edition of the fellwalking classic, virtually all of the photographs have been re-taken by the legendary Lakeland photographer, Derry Brabbs.

Wainwright decided to write a narrative, descriptive account of his eighteen favourite walks and these are now indisputably the eighteen classic long Lake District walks. Described and discussed by a man who was both a master fellwalker and a lover of the hills with an unparalleled facility for writing about them, the result is a book of unmatched quality. With the text updated to account for minor changes in the terrain and with stunning new photography, this book will immediately take its place as the most beautiful, most authoritative and most useful book on the much much-loved Lakeland hills. . . . more

1100. The Friendship - Wordsworth and Coleridge
Adam Sisman
REDUCED FROM £20.00.......... The friendship between William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge produced dazzling results. From it came 'Lyrical Ballads', the volume that kick-started the Romantic Movement in England. Rarely, if ever, have two such gifted young writers co-operated so closely. Coleridge, who acknowledged Wordsworth as the greatest poet since Milton, was himself a poet of unique talents, and moreover was widely recognised to be the greatest genius of his age. The story of this unique pairing is compelling and often poignant. No previous biographer has considered them together, as Adam Sisman does in this fascinating book. The result offers insights into the rich yet neglected topic of friendship, and the tantalising glimpses of the creative process itself. . . . more
