4.0 out of 5 stars Quality finish., 10 Sep 2014
Fine quality timber,nicely finished-a nice change from flat pack melamine chipboard. It was quite difficult to assemble in a confined space,but worth the effort.A nice small piece of furniture,quite big enough for a computer desk. Reasonable price for a nice looking result.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great-but, 11 July 2013
I have always had great reverence for this mighty work-but I recently came across some bog cotton(Eriophorum angustofolium) in a local habitat,wasn't sure what it was,and was unable to track it down in the flora.Found it online, though-chastened to find that Google scored over the Flora.Cannot understand why this plant isn't mentioned in the most revered of reference books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pictures not maps, 24 Dec 2011
This review is from: London: A Life in Maps (Paperback)
Very disappointing-there is a world of difference between maps and illustrations of maps-it is not possible to discern street names on any of the "maps",so their presence is a sort of pleasant curiosity.The text is excellent,but the representation of the book as one of a map guide is misleading.If you want to see Pepy's streets of the city-you won't find them in this.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mystery and the Man, 20 Dec 2002
The Sonnets have provided scholars of Shakespeare with a charming conundrum for centuries,and continue to do so;to whom,for whom-sometimes even by whom?The web site that forms the basis of this publication offers an informative and decorative examination of the riddle,as well as a beautiful presentation of them as a collection.To present them alongside the original Elizabethan format somehow adds to the mystery,and offers the modern reader who may not have the scholarly skills an opportunity to see how language has "worked" in this context.It was an inspired idea.
Poetry is making a come-back.Hopefully books like this,representative of the greatest poet of them all-will support this revival.
