Happy to say, we’ve come across a large collection of the 1940s/1950s series ‘Britain in Pictures.’

During WWII, under the threat of a lost national identity, Collins published the ‘Britain in Pictures’ series to celebrate Britain’s unique contribution to the arts.  This amazing series celebrated various subjects to help boost national pride.

Many of the books were written and/or edited by notable names.   From Sir Richard Gregory on British Scientists to Elizabeth Bowen on English Novelists, each slim volume – 132 in all ! – are true keepsakes of their time.

If you’re interested in knowing our complete inventory (including price/condition/printing) – please email me directly at .. or better yet, stop-by and have a browse.
