Books and Stuff

What I've Read this Week

I carried on with Pope Francis: Untying the Knots.


What I've Bought this Week...

A B Demaus (ed), Letters from HMS Britannia: William Lambert and the Late Victorian Navy - £2.99
Rudyard Kipling, A Fleet in Being: Notes of Two Trips with the Channel Squadron - £3.00
Rudyard Kipling, The Fringes of the Fleet - £3.00
Mark Mower, Zeppelin Over Suffolk: The Final Raid of L48 - £4.99


I'm particularly pleased with the Kiplings - the Fleet in Being is a 1898 [first?] edition with a nice cover picture by Norman Wilkinson (one of his earliest published works), and the Fringes of the Fleet is a 1916 edition (the third printing).
