Lost Worlds. What Have We Lost, & Where Did it Go?

by Bywater, Michael

Condition: See description


(London, Granta Books, 2004). 8vo; original blue cloth; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. (viii) + 296 (including index). Fine condition. 'Like some Augustan Umberto Eco, Bywater decodes, derides and deconstructs the major and minor archanas of world civilizations, hilariously zooming in and out from chocolate bars to cosmology: anatomizing moustaches and melancholy, dogs and democracy. This marvellous and valuable book transforms itself as you read from a quirky miscellany into something wiser, nobler, deeper, sadder and more remarkable.' - Stephen Fry. .
