Christmas Gift Books ME Nonesuch Press have published this Christmas

a new edition of their famous Weekend Book (Os.). This edition has no longer the familiar illustrations by Mr. Albert Rutherston, but is decorated very charmingly by T. L. Poulton : it is also enlarged and contains more prose sections and practical information, for instance, the new section on Architecture. TM Weekend Book is an absolutely safe Christmas present for anyone who loves poetry. Our reviewer of the first edition, published in 1924, prophesied that it would become a classic, and we think this prophesy is coming true, if it has not already come true.
