Reader's note

A 1974 edition of The Pebbles on the Beach by Clarence Ellis! 'Most people collect something or other: stamps, butterflies, beetles, months, dried and pressed wildflowers, old snuff-boxes, china dogs and so forth. A few eccentrics even collect disused bus tickets! But collectors of pebbles are rare. Let us hasten to add that we mean discrimination to collectors. Before the authorities responsible for the preservation of our coasts awoke to the seriousness of coastal erosion, collection in its worst and widest sense went on. Hundreds of thousands of tons of shingle were removed from the beaches annually in cart-loads for building and other purposes, thus depriving the cliffs of their defence against the attacks of the waves.'
