Any thing by PLF is to be acquired and enjoyed. Print in this edition is rather illegible - magnification is vital for those of riper years.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mugwump, 16 Nov 2009
Great build up on enticement page but leaves cunning mathematical voids or rather assumption of great leaps in comparative logic which takes me back to my first term at Dartmouth in 1945 with HKP, fruity Prout, he of the tenor voice who sang G & S's Rataplan (and had solved Pi to something lihe 59 places) "I'm a military man" but couln't penetrate literary minds with what he was demonstrating with a flagstaff and a sextant to find the solution for tan. Oh hades oh mores. I have yet to find the easy and perfect solution. Who can give me a suggestion?

The old boy excels, the plot thrilling, tortuous and imaginative, scenery evocative, why don't they make it like this anymore?

Quite the best delivery and book standard. It has assuagued my thirst for long ago memories. A real grown up's Christmas compendium - why did they not continue with it? You will be charmed by the splendid care and service of my friends at Brightonbooks. Martin Harriman

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer delight, 18 Feb 2009
We have purchased three copies of this book,one to keep,one for an artistic and architectural part of our family and one for our best ever near neighbours. In addition strong recommendations have been made to many friends. The charm and delight of the most splendid Osbert's sketches, cartoons and life are treasures to be safely guarded and returned to often. Do buy and enjoy this genius of a book and be like us in giving a most delightful and thoroughly appreciated present.
