The original High Street by J M Richards, with illustrations by Eric Ravilious, was published in 1938 by Country Life, but was never reprinted after the initial pressing of 2,000 copies because all the lithographic plates were lost in the Blitz of 1940. This book includes the complete text and illustrations of the original, as well as two long essays by Alan Powers and James Russell, and numerous preparatory drawings, many published here for the first time.
