"Leaves from My Library" is a unique anthology of English prose which Lord Denning has himself chosen from his library at his country home at Whitchurch. The scenes are many and varied, ranging from the trial of the Merchant of Venice to that of the Knave of Hearts...from the decks of Nelson's Victory to the drawing rooms of Jane Austen...from the Pilgrims' gathering at the Tabard Inn to Sir Winston Churchill addressing a nation at war.
