The Last Englishman: The Life of J.L. Carr

J. L. Carr was the most English of Englishmen: headmaster of a Northamptonshire school, cricket enthusiast and campaigner for the conservation of country churches. But he was also the author of half a dozen utterly unique novels and a publisher of some of the most eccentric — and smallest — books ever printed. Byron Rogers’ acclaimed biography reveals an elusive, quixotic and civic-minded individual with an unswerving sympathy for the underdog, who led his schoolchildren through the streets to hymn the beauty of the cherry trees, and whose fiction is quite remarkably autobiographical. Much more than the life of a thoroughly decent man, The Last Englishman is a comic and touching picture of the best kind of Englishness. (288pp, paperback) Code: LTLE

Bookshop A 1950s Housewife: Marriage and Homemaking in the 1950s

The dictionary defines “housewife” as “a woman, usually married, who runs a house”, so according to that description it seems that she does still exist, although many modern women would probably bridle at being described in such a way! Every aspect of life is covered, including the day-to-day routine, food and drink, fashions, visits to the hairdressers, making a phone call, a typical shopping trip, holidays, work, entertainment and inequality. Mention of prefabs, geysers in bathrooms, the ritual of folding sheets, the delivery of coal, dress patterns, early closing, English Electric top-loaders and the Kellogg’s Insignia Plate cutlery offer on cereal packets might also provoke a few nods of recognition. Completing this often amusing journey back in time, the book concludes with a section listing popular books, films, plays, songs, radio programmes and advertisements from the 1950s.

Bix Beiderbecke

Nobody has ever emulated the bell-like tone of self-taught cornet player Leon "Bix" Beiderbecke! His unique sound was an inspiration to all jazz lovers and his recordings sound as fresh today as they did back in the Twenties. Sadly, he died young at the age of only 28 but his brilliant reputation remains untarnished. Never heard him? Start now — you won't regret it! Code: C149

New Country Gardens

We all like a nice garden and green fingers have provided the inspiration for many composers down the years. These 24 superb tracks include mention of Narcissus, Marigold, Hollyhock, Daisies, Bluebells, Roses, Amaryllis, Lavender and Apple Blossom, not to mention birds, trees and insects. A delightfully rural selection of music. Code: C150

The Sound of Music

The last Rodgers and Hammerstein masterpiece and one of the most successful musicals of all time! Based on the real von Trapp family (who also fled from the Nazis), the songs need little introduction but include Maria, So Long Farewell, Do-Re-Mi, My Favourite Things, Edelweiss, Lonely Goatherd, Sixteen Going on Seventeen, Climb Every Mountain and many more. Code: CL12 Just

New Comedian Harmonists

This brilliant closeharmony group were the forerunners of the Hi-Los, Kings Singers and many others. Their time at the top, however, was relatively brief because the Nazis broke them up. The group had already conquered Europe and North America but, happily, their superb songs remain for us to enjoy. If you haven’t heard them before then now is the time to be musically educated!

This England’s England’s


Illustrated History of the


Many books are being published to commemorate the centenary of the First World War, but none will cover the subject with as much colour and variety as this lavish, 100-page collection of fascinating facts, evocative photographs (many not seen for a hundred years), wide-ranging articles on all sorts of subjects and poignant pieces of poetry written by soldiers at the front. The main events of the years 1914 to 1918 are chronicled, complemented by informative articles about the main battles and illustrated features on many different aspects of life both in the trenches and on the home front. These include an account of the famous Christmas Truce of 1914, the role played by women in the factories of Britain, and details of some of the music hall stars who entertained the troops when they were home on leave. A series entitled “The First World War on Screen” shows how the war has been depicted in films and on television, while “A Pilgrimage to Remember” is one lady’s moving account of her recent visit to the battlefields of France and Belgium. There is also a useful section giving details of some of the commemorative events and exhibitions which will be taking place during the next four years.


£5.99 to UK

Carefully and sensitively compiled by the editorial staff of This England, The Illustrated History of the First World War is sure to become a collector’s item. Part diary, part history, part voice from the past, it is also a stirring and worthy tribute to all those who, 100 years ago, fought and died for our freedom. Don’t miss out. Order your copy today.
