The first edition published in 1951 ran to a mere 248 pages with 95 black and white photographs; the new edition has 896 pages and 126 colour and 72 black and white illustrations. Interestingly, the 1951 book cost 3/6 whereas the new one retails at £45.
Nottinghamshire was singled out by Pevsner as one of the first three counties covered by the series. His account was updated by Elizabeth Williamson in a revised edition of 1979. Clare Hartwell’s greatly expanded successor volume, with lavish new photographs, maps and illustrations, will in turn become the standard companion to the county’s buildings, and an essential reference work.
