Whole years worth of National Geographic for £2. Made my day.

As of 1955, English English art constituted of Hogarth, babooneries (the little drawings found in the margins of illuminated manuscripts), the Bayeux Tapestry, Willian Holman Hunt, James Gillray, “architecture… especially inclined… to tell a story, that is to put on a costume chosen to conjure up certain literary, evocative or associational ideas”, Joshua Reynolds, Thomas Gainsborough, gothic revival, “realism not too realistic”, conservatism, the perpendicular style, verticals, the unadulating line, William Blake and his “tender curves”, Constable, Turner, small scale, gardens and the picturesque. 
Quite acute for a man that had only lived in England for 20 years up unto releasing this book.
