1.0 out of 5 stars Great book, shame about this version!, 7 Jan 2010
This review is from: 1066 and All That (Paperback)
As a school-kid way back when, I had very fond memories of this slim but amusing take on English history. However, this edition must have been printed from the original, worn old plates, as the text is blurry and a pain to read. It's like re-visiting a wonderful, much-loved old historic building, only to find that it has been allowed to fall into disrepair. Come on, Methuen, spend some money on getting it re-set, and clean up the line illustrations, or just give it to another publisher who might care a bit more than you!

It seems that Methuen took your advice. My copy is fine.
