Review: This is the second of a two-volume set. The first, ‘The Penguin Classics Book’ was published in 2018. That volume is divided according to ancient ages from ‘The Ancient World’ to ‘The Industrial Age’. This volume is divided according to continents, beginning with Europe. Under that comes the British Isles, and the book proper begins with books from Ireland. Oscar Wild thus takes pride of first place with two of his books featured at page 3: ‘Lord Arthur Saville’s Crime’, and ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’. This book is organised by authors since most of the authors had more than one book published by Penguin. Prolific authors like Italo Calvino occupy four pages. Every author is accompanied by a brief but informative introduction to himself/herself, then follows a picture of the book(s) cover as published by Penguin, and a synopsis of each book. This book is voluminous and is 603 pages long. Every page is educational and fun to read. And together with the first volume, make an impressive collection in any library. Either or both make a handsome gift, but be advised that the books are heavy, even individually. The covers are cloth bound (at least they look and feel so), and the paper is of excellent quality from FSC Responsible Sources.

Review: A fascinating weighty book, but too bloody heavy to read in bed!

    Description: Who had birds called Death, Wigs and Spinach? How do you spell the noise of a door slamming? Whose working title was The Chronic Argonauts? Henry Eliot - author, editor and insatiable bookworm - has ransacked the libraries and archives of world literature, compiling hundreds of bookish lists. This eclectic gallimaufry showcases his favourites: we witness the tragic ends of the Ancient Greek tragedians, learn the name of George Orwell's pet cockerel and rummage through Joan Didion's travelling bag; we consider the history of literary fart jokes, orbit the Shakespearean moons of Uranus and meet several pigs with wings. From the sublime to the ridiculous - and everything in between - Eliot's lists, recommendations and nuggets of trivia will delight, inspire and surprise anyone who loves reading. Beautifully presented with supplementary maps and illustrations, Henry Eliot's Book of Bookish Lists is the essential gift for book-lovers.

    Description: .a good bit of spice to give the critlings a flavour, and plenty of treacle to make the mince-meat look rich' Radical Victorian reformer Henry Mayhew walked the streets of London interviewing ordinary flower girls, market traders, piemen and costermongers to create the first ever work of mass social observation, and the ultimate account of urban life - including an extraordinary description of the city from a hot air balloon. Introducing Little Black Classics: 80 books for Penguin's 80th birthday. Little Black Classics celebrate the huge range and diversity of Penguin Classics, with books from around the world and across many centuries. They take us from a balloon ride over Victorian London to a garden of blossom in Japan, from Tierra del Fuego to 16th century California and the Russian steppe. Here are stories lyrical and savage; poems epic and intimate; essays satirical and inspirational; and ideas that have shaped the lives of millions. Henry Mayhew (1812-1887). Mayhew's London Labour and the London Poor is available in Penguin Classics. Penguin Books Ltd Of Street Piemen - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk
