Wainwright Pictorial Guides: Boxed Set
50th Anniversary Edition
This edition was published in 2007 to commemorate 50 years since Alfred Wainwright released the first volume of his Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells. No-one could have imagined how popular they would become. Although Chris Jesty has now produced an excellent updated 2nd edition which remains true to the AW style there is still a demand for the originals, just as the sketches, text and maps came from the pen of “A. Wainwright” himself.
This boxed set includes all seven of the 1955-66 series, reprinted from the actual Wainwright sketches and made to match as closely as possible the original books published half a century ago:
- Book One: The Eastern Fells (1955)
- Book Two: The Far Eastern Fells (1957)
- Book Three: The Central Fells (1958)
- Book Four: The Southern Fells (1960)
- Book Five: The Northern Fells (1962)
- Book Six: The North Western Fells (1964)
- Book Seven: The Western Fells (1966)
