George Allen & Unwin: A Remembrancer (Hardcover)


Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days
George Allen & Unwin as a publishing imprint reflected a cross-section of the intellectual achievement of the Twentieth Century.

In his Remembrancer, former Chairman Rayner Unwin traces the vicissitudes of his own time with the Company. It is a digressive and personal history, with reflections on the delights as well as the dangers of a style of publishing that is now fast vanishing.

He particularly focusses on his memories of publishing famous authors including:

- JRR Tolkien

- Thor Heyerdahl

- Bertrand Russell

- Roald Dahl

This frank and elegant publishing memoir covers the eventual take-over of the Company. A Remembrancer brings to life this sequence of events which led to the winding up of a distinguished firm.
