‘In March 1913, as the storm clouds of the Great War gathered, Edward Thomas took a bicycle ride from Clapham to the Quantock Hills in Somerset . . .

The great poet recorded his journey with photographs and in notebooks, later publishing In Pursuit of Spring, a book now considered his best work of prose.

Edward Thomas is not known for his photography but these prints, hidden deep in the archives for many years, record meticulously what he saw – through Guildford, Winchester, Salisbury, across the Plain, to the Bristol Channel – combine with the poet’s thoughts and feelings into a brooding elegy for a world now lost. Little Toller is delighted to have discovered these photographs and to be able to publish them for the first time.’ – Little Toller Books
