I picked up two copies of this book, just because of it's venerable age. Once I looked inside, I find I can release it back into the wild. It is only mildly interesting, with fairly boring black & white photos.

The two spreads that interested me the most are the remains of [The Thirty-Nine Steps] and Burrington Gorge, which inspired the hymn 'Rock of Ages.' That rock formation is very cool.

This book includes photos from the throughout England of literary locations that inspired scenes in classic literature. Each one includes a quote from the text, the photo and a brief explanation of where the location is and why it was used. The information is a bit dated, but it's still interesting. ( )

Way Cool. The reproductions of the photographs, or the photographs themselves, are fuzzy. But that seems to give authenticity to the subject matter - England can be a bit fuzzy sometimes, as can the history of literature.
