A BATSFORD CENTURY. Hector Bolitho. B. T. Batsford, London & Malvern Wells. 1944 Second Impression 148pp Illustrated Hardback. This copy is in fine condition bound in publisher's original blue linen covered boards with bright gilt titling to the spine and the front. Pages are uncut to the side and the bottom, gilt top edges. The text block is bright, white and tight and, despite being published in the middle of the Second World War, was not subject to the privations of being printed on wartime economy paper, as were many of the books produced by Batsford at that time. Moreover it appears to have been printed on a rather upmarket laid paper and printed to a very high specification with many plates. The unclipped dust wrapper has a little edge wear and has a small ( 1 cm) area of loss to the bottom edge of the front panel, it is also a trifle sun darkened to the spine. This has now been covered in clear, removable protective film. The publishing firm of B. T. Batsford has the rare distinction among English publishers of being collected as much for the quality of their productions as for the contents of their author's books. Not least of which are the stunning book jackets executed by one of their Directors, Brian Cook (1910-1991), whose colourful landscapes and architectural images using the Jean Berte process soon became the focus for collectors. In America the sales division of Scribners reported that the vibrant 'Brian Cook' dust wrappers were the single most important influence on buyers of Batsford books.
