A Tonic To The Nation


Price: £25.00


This is a superb account of the Festival of Britain. It was published in 1976 on the 25th anniversary of the festival to accompany an exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

The book is crammed with recollections from many big names associated with the festival - such as Gerald Barry, Mischa Black, Hugh Casson, etc - and comments from ordinary people who visited the event.

We have located a limited quantity of this classic and rare book for purchase.

PLEASE NOTE: All the copies have been purchased from high-class antique book dealers and are therefore of good quality. Second hand books are however subject to the usual problems - light foxing and / or lightly stained pages, loose or missing spines and the page edges, etc may not be perfect. Where available the jackets may not be perfect (and we may not have any in stock with a jacket). The pages are always fully secure. The best available copy of the book will always be sent.
