Henley-on-Thames, town, trade and river

Simon Townley, Phillimore, 2009, 170mm x 247mm, 198pp, ISBN 9781860775543

This is a comprehensive and fascinating history of the relationship of Henley, the river Thames and the annual regatta, all of which influenced the town and its growth. The author recommends that you take this book with you when you visit the town to help you understand many of the things you see there. Copiously illustrated with black and white and coloured photographs, maps, documents and other images, it also has marginal notes to enable you to find items of interest. And, of course, there are sections on sources, further reading and a detailed index.
