The Illustrated London News, 1905-1907

The Collected Works of G.K.Chesterton Volume 27: The Illustrated London News, 1905-1907 by G.K. Chesterton

A collection of newspaper columns.  And like all such books, it has a certain interest in looking back at the issues of the day.  For instance, teetotalers objecting a brewer as Lord Mayor.  Defenses of various ceremonies and rituals retaining the full ceremony.  Oxford and Cambridge as playgrounds for the rich.  The dishonesty of the Yellow Press.  Referring to the King of England.  And more.

All in Chesterton's style.
