The Book of Prefaces, Paperback


This book is not a monster created by a literary Baron Frankenstein, but a unique history of how literature spread and developed through three British nations and most North American states.

The result of a lifetime's reading and creative labour, intellectual and artistic, "The Book of Prefaces" will delight, amaze and inform both casual browsers and students.

Its like will not be seen again for at least another millennium.
