Letters from England by Robert Southey( Book )

6 editions published between 1951 and 1984 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1807 the poet, reviewer and translator Robert Southey published a pseudonymous account of a journey made through England by a fictitious Spanish tourist, 'Don Manuel Alvarez Espriella'. Letters from England (1807) relates Espriella's travels from his arrival in Falmouth, through the West Country to London, the Midlands, Lake District, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire and back to Cornwall again for the voyage home. On his journey Espriella comments on every aspect of British society, from fashions and manners, to political and religious beliefs. Letters from England blurs the boundaries of fact and fiction to produce a complex work of literary merit - there is no other prose work of its kind during the Romantic period. Southey's commentary is shrewd and lively, and provides the reader with a close-up view of early nineteenth-century culture and society. Among the topics covered are: provincial customs; political intrigues; theatre and sports; religious sects; poverty and criminality in urban centres; scientific and medical progress; Georgian London; social change; and the state of the army and navy. The edition will be of interest to all scholars of Romantic literature and culture" --

St. Pancras Station by Jack Simmons( Book )

13 editions published between 1968 and 2012 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"St Pancras Station is the most famous railway terminus in Britain. Built by the Midland Railway in 1866-76, it combines a vast single-arched trainshed with a frontage building and hotel in the most magnificent Gothic style. As one contemporary said when it opened, 'the harmony that is apparent in all parts of this great work is a practical proof...of the advantages that accrue from the united workings of architects and engineers'." "This book was first published in 1968, when the future of St Pancras Station was in doubt. Described by John Betjeman as 'readable, learned and inspiring', it was instrumental in the campaign to save the station. Combining architectural, social and railway history, it provides a comprehensive biography of the station from the first designs to its subsequent use." "Now the future of St Pancras is secure and it is to be the new London terminus of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link. For this republication of Simmons' classic work, the engineering and transport historian Robert Thorne had added to the original text and provided a new chapter bringing the story up to date."--BOOK JACKET
