This is an auction for THE FOLIO BOOK OF DAYS.

Selected and Introduced by Roger Hudson.

This is a Folio Society hardback in new condition.

"Drawing on diaries, letters, journals, eyewitness accounts, newspaper reports, speeches and sermons - indeed, on any source that is dated - this specially commissioned volume features around 500 entries by 95 writers, selected and edited by Roger Hudson and 160 glorious paintings, photographs and engravings - 100 in full colour. In The Folio Book of Days you can eavesdrop on the everyday conversations or idle thoughts of the great and the good; view earth-shattering events from a new perspective; or re-live memorable days from the lives of the great diarists. From an eyewitness account of the murder of Thomas á Becket at Canterbury Cathedral on 29 December 1170, to the terror attacks on New York on 11 September 2001, the voices of past and present echo loud and clear.
