Overview

Originally published in 1927, this is a wonderfully detailed guide to the taverns of old England. With the aid of many examples and a wealth of illustrations and photographs, it classifies the various types of inn that sheltered our fathers on their journeys incidentally telling the story of the old House of Call and the part it has played in the making of England. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. Contents Include: The Manor House The Sign of the Crown The Sign of the Bull The Sign of the George The Sign of the Angel The Sign of the White Horse The Sign of the White Hart The Sign of the Red Lion The Sign of the Bell The Sign of the tabard The Sign of the Checquers The Sign of the Woolpack The Sign of the Boar's Head The Sign of the Bull's Head The Sign of the King's Head The Sign of the Shakespeare The Sign of the Goat in Boots The Sign of the Coach and Horses Coffee Houses The Sign of the Lord Nelson The Sign of the Man Laden With Mischief In Praise of the Publican
