£109.99   Complete Lakeland Fells (boxed set) - A Wainwright
  This anniversary edition of the best-selling Wainwright Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells turns back the clock fifty years to show his work as it must have looked when it was first penned. Until now, every edition of the guides has been based on images from metal plates. As the plates became worn through years of reprinting, the images lost sharpness and subtlety. Here for the first time the pages have been re-originated from the author's artwork and can be seen in their full glory once more.;The paper used in the guides, and the bindings of each book, have also been matched as closely as possible to the first edition. In November 2004 Frances Lincoln will be issuing a special boxed set of the seven Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells. This will be contained in a card slipcase, illustrated in the style of the Wainwright books and shrinkwrapped. The books contained are: Book One: Eastern Fells; Book Two: Far Eastern Fells; Book Three: Central Fells; Book Four: Southern Fells; Book Five: Northern Fells; Book Six: North Western Fells; Book Seven: Western Fells
