My copy of Martin Salisbury’s book has already passed the acid test. A couple of people have asked to borrow it, on what will probably turn out to be a one-way journey. It’s a delightful, deeply learned anthology (containing 371 illustrations) that lovingly confirms the ways in which good art and erudition will find their way into any convenient nook or cranny.
