When Timothy is a child, Clement Harcombe frequently takes his young son to Hackney Square to see the monuments of John Bunyan and William Blake. When faced with separation from his father he races back to the square. For Timothy, as for all visionaries, the invisible world serves as the imagination's landscape. True as well for the setting of English Music.

This outstanding book is bound in genuine leather with raised bands and marbled endpapers. Features gilded, sewn-in pages with a satin marker. Simply superb quality; Franklin Library at its best.
