Description: D/J and Book are in great condition. The extraordinary story recounted in this book opens at a market junk-stall in Yorkshire with the discovery, quite by chance, of a family collection of several hundred Victorian and Edwardian photographic negatives. The pictures, with there magical glimpses of Badminton, Picnics, Japanese teas, Fancy dress pagents, and leisured life of one family for over forty years from the year of Queen Victorias Jubilee. The pictures, however, do not stand alone, and in a lively text Colin Gordon relates his remarkable find and subsequent detective work to discover more about the photographer and his family. This is just one of those really good books. You will receive the book seen in the image, Thankyou. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall ISBN 0241899346
