Landscape With Machines

A new edition of L.T.C. (Tom) Roltís (1910-74) classic autobiography, weaving Roltís memories with his love of the English landscape and infectious fascination for machines. Rolt is recalled for his warm prose and foresighted campaigns of the growing Preservation movement to protect British canals and railways Ė such as the Tal-y-llyn - amidst the dramatic social and technological changes affecting the British countryside in the 1950s-70s. Imbued with his love for the countryside whilst full of ploughing engines, locomotives, barges, narrowboats and vintage cars. 3 volumes, which can be read in series or standalone; each illustrated with photographs from the familyís archive. Landscape with Figures: written in the last years of Rolt's life and published posthumously, volume 3 continues the story of Roltís life in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Includes an account of his involvement in the early days of the Tal-y-llyn Railway, veteran car rallies and travels on the Tralee-Dingle Light railway in West Kerry.
