Don't be fooled by the generic title: the photographs in Godwin's book of British landscapes are dynamic and strong. Richly printed in duotone, these 112 black-and-white images of moors, trees, ancient stones, and mountains reveal a landscape charged by brilliant light and intriguing composition. Jeffrey's introduction finds the work ``ceaselessly interested in differences between the wild and the cultivated, between what is primal, vast and even boundless, and what is orderly and near to hand.'' Indeed, the action in the clouds, the lines in the fences and fields, the mystery in the fog are striking and yet calm. This is a much more accomplished and lavish production than Godwin's earlier collaboration with John Fowles in Islands (Little, 1978). Many of the images have been published previously, but are fine to see here. Recommended. Ann Copeland, Drew Univ. Lib., Madison, N.J.
