Review for 26 Treasures

This book has a treasured place on my bookshelf, it's there right to hand, I love nothing better than to pick it up and dip into it, randomly opening the book and discovering a historical treasure and beside it a poem inspired by the item, from James 2nds Wedding Suit to a Shoemakers Last and everyhting and anything inbetween. 104 treasures, from 4 national museums (26 each) - but really it should be called 27 Treasures because the book is a treasure in its own right. This book is simply too good to miss.
