DescriptionsEdit Descriptions

Begun in 1941, this series aimed to give British and overseas readers a comprehensive picture of the UK. The typical volume has 48 pages of text with black and white illustrations and eight or more colour plates. 126 of the projected 132 volumes were published, covering British achievements in literature, arts and crafts, exploration, science, and just about every aspect of life in town and country, including natural history and sport. Several volumes covered the overseas Dominions and colonies. The editors showed considerable inspiration in their choice of authors, many of whom were not as celebrated then as they became in later decades.Intended volumes 41, 42, 54, 56, 114 and 118 were not published.There is a nice list at http://www.booksandwriters.co.uk/B/britain-in-pictures-series.html (English, Unclassified)
