This one-of-a-kind mid century England book has amazing history and color plates of England. The American Geographical Society guidebook on England was published by Nelson Doubleday in 1956. In 1956 it was noted that "even the most optimistic Englishman today grants that it will take quite a bit of doing to get her back 'in the black'. It is fully realized that a country which becomes too dependent upon largess, loans and similar assistance is in danger of collapse, if not sudden decease. Deficit financing, Marshall Plan aid, and a devaluated pound are stopgaps, not cures for Britain's economic ills."

The book has historical background on England, with vignettes about the industry and regions of England. There are 25 color plates that are still in one sheet, and various pages in the book refer to a color plate by number, and have a blank space in which you can paste the specific plate. There is also a black/white portrait of the Queen and Prince Charles (age 8) and Princess Anne (age 6).

This book is in excellent vintage condition, is not musty or moldy, and all the pages are unmarked. The book is from my pet-free and smoke-free home.
