Volume XXXVII contains all of G.K. Chesterton’s columns in The Illustrated London News from 1935 to 1936. Most of the weekly articles have never been printed in book form until Ignatius Press undertook to do the collected works. Chesterton lovers will be delighted to find this treasure filled with jewels quite the match of his best writing. The breadth and depth of his knowledge – from history to politics to English fads and conventions – never fail to impress, and his wit is as refreshing as when these pieces were first written.
This book is the last of The Illustrated London News volumes. It includes a subject index which covers all the The Illustrated London News volumes (27-37).
