Cooper, Jilly. The British in Love. An amorously autobiographical anthology. With illustrations by Don Grant. London, Arlington Books, 1980. 24cm x 16cm. 243 pages. Colour frontispiece plate. Original Hardcover with original illustrated dustjacket. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear.

Includes for Example: C.Day Lewis/ Hilaire Belloc/ Elinor Glyn/ A.E. Housman/ P.G. Wodehouse/ W.B. Yeats/ Adrian Mitchell/ D.H. Lawrence/ T.S. Eliot/ W.H. Auden/ George Barker/ Louis MacNeice/ Anthony Powell etc.

A very personal collection of poetry and prose enlivened by sparkling, linking passages from Jilly in which she gives a wry and touching commentary on her own life and loves, and recalls how often poetry helped her to say things and feel emotions that could not otherwise be expressed. This remarkable anthology grew out of a BBC Television programme under the same title, which was researched and scripted by Jilly. There is much that will be familiar in this volume, but there is also a large number of surprising and touching poems and short pieces of prose which are not so well known.
