Published in the 1940s, during WW2, the Britain in Pictures series was intended as a morale booster for the British public. It was designed to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of British people, from their contributions to the arts and culture, to their successes in science and industry. The books explore a huge range of different topics, each written by the subject-experts of the time. With their beautiful images and attractive coloured dust jackets, these books are popular with collectors and would make a lovely addition to any bookshelf.
