Publisher's Synopsis

George Allen & Unwin as a publishing imprint reflected a cross-section of the intellectual achievement of the Twentieth Century.  In his Remembrancer, former Chairman Rayner Unwin traces the vicissitudes of his own time with the Company. It is a digressive and personal history, with reflections on the delights as well as the dangers of a style of publishing that is now fast vanishing.  He particularly focusses on his memories of publishing famous authors including: • JRR Tolkien  • Thor Heyerdahl • Bertrand Russell  • Roald Dahl This frank and elegant publishing memoir covers the eventual take-over of the Company. A Remembrancer brings to life this sequence of events which led to the winding up of a distinguished firm.
