I spotted a couple of new books. Firstly, The Hummingbird Cabinet: A Rare and Curious History of Romantic Collectors sounds interesting. And secondly, John Gordon’s classic The Giant Under The Snow (1968) has finally, after nearly 40 years, been re-issued — although the dull dustwrapper is not a patch on the superb Antony Maitland cover for the 1972 Puffin paperback.
