Title: Stratford-Upon-Avon — Illustrated Guide Book (1933)
Cover artist: no
Yours for: SOLD (11/21/09)
- I bought this exclusively for the maps, both the cover map an the (sizable) fold-out area map inside (immaculate).
- Lots of photos / maps inside, and huge chunks of advertising in front and back, including one for "Dr. J. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne — safe and reliable family remedy for INFLUENZA, coughs, colds, catarrh, asthma, bronchitis." Also something called "diarrhœa"!
- "Foreign Orders Receive Prompt Attention" — that's code! It's a papist plot! Man your punts!
GLOUCESTER is a busy city with none of the placid charm of Tewkesbury, but it has many features of interest.
