Liberty of London, Part 1- Books

Okay.  I was going to do a post on Liberty of London.  Just a general post.  I have a Liberty of London for Target wallet that I love- it's a great floral pattern made out of oil cloth- the Liberty Thorpe print.  Nice and sturdy.  And I thought it would be fun to do a feature on some of their products.  But.  I went to their website and found about a thousand books that I want right now.  So I am going to do this in parts.  And we will start, of course, with books.

London Pocket Companion
This is the first book from Liberty of London  that is now on my (long) list of wants.  Here is a snippet I
stole copied from the Liberty of London website describing the book.

"Who sold Buckingham Palace to an American tourist? Whose head fell off London Bridge into his daughter’s lap? How do you make Big Ben gain two-fifths of a second? Why did John Etherington’s top hat get him arrested in Mayfair in 1797? Which Londoner embalmed his wife and displayed her in a glass cabinet in his front room?"See?  How can you read that and then not want to read the actual book and find out the answers?!
available at Liberty of London UK
