This has entailed the writing of a good number of "fair copies" in Greek, some of which I have now ventured to have printed privately and sent to some of my friends, to two of whom... I am especially indebted... I hope that any former member of Division I, who happens to cast eye upon these Versions, may feel the same happiness in his memories of that Division as the author of this work.' 022821

11 On the Burning of Books
Baker, Kenneth Unicorn London 2016 1910787116 / 9781910787113 First Edition Hardcover New New Book 4to - over 9 - 12" tall 
First impression. New hardback, in excellent fine condition. RRP. 25.00. pp. vi, 266. Ranging politically from Ancient China to the Nazis, from Animal Farm to Chairman Mao; religiously, from the Spanish destruction of the Aztec civilisation to Bloody Mary, from Salman Rushdie's The Satanic Verses to bibles in Islamist strongholds today; personally, from Samuel Pepys and Lord Byron to Dickens's letters, Hardy's poems, Burton's translations, and Philip Larkin's diaries.Alongside these telling examples are chapters on burning in war, accidental burning, royal burning - and lucky escapes. Baker reveals that while books, diaries and letters can be burnt, as a result of the invention of the printing press in the 16th century, very rarely can their content be expunged from the written record in history - the 'delete' button did not delete. Book burning today survives as a symbol, usually by desperate regimes, dictators and religious fanatics to impress the naive, warn the dissenter and rally the faithful. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear.
