Auflage: 1st Edition
Cloth, 4to, 647 pp. From the publisher's advertisement: "The Obituaries in The Times have been a classic source of biographical detail for scholars and researchers for many years, providing a substantia! Account of the lives of distinguished men and women from both Britain and overseas. These obituaries are now available in bound volume form, having been reprinted direct from The Times without re-writing. Thus they paint a picture of each life as the contemporary world saw it - only the rare factual error having been corrected. The selection has been made with regard to the public importance of the subject of the obituary, the intrinsic interest of what was written about him, and the need to reflect the wide range of nationalises and walks of life within The Times Obituary columns. In addition to the selected obituaries each volume contains an index to all obituaries and tributes published during the period, thus providing an access key to the researcher using the newspaper files in hard copy or microfilm edition." From the blurb: "The present volume is a record of 1,000 men and women of our times whose lives ended in the half-decade of the Early Seventies, 1971-1975-and a record of the opinions on those lives expressed by The Times contemporaneously. The selection of the entries, as before, has regard to "the public importance of each subject, the intrinsic interest of what was written about him, and the need to reflect the wide range of nationalities and walks of life which The Times obituaries encompass". Two new features are a contents guide to the names chosen, by reference to their fields of activity: and a simple indication of references in the text to subjects of obituaries printed in the earlier volume. The second part of the book contains an index of all entries appearing in the obituary columns of The Times in 1971 1975, including the dates on which obituaries and appreciations or "tributes" from outside contributors appeared. As before, the volume is an impressive source for students and researchers on the lives of national leaders, artists, men of letters, musicians, industrialists, architects, explorers, fighting men and women, sportsmen, philosophers, churchmen, actors and other entertainers, and men and women who were, in their own ways, familiar "characters". The international flavour of the entries has been fully maintained." Traces of removed labels on endpapers and inside flaps of dustwrappers, otherwise near Very Good in slightly used dustwrapper.
