The King's England series is Arthur Mee's informative and amazingly comprehensive survey of England, first published in 1937, when the books set the standard for guides to British heritage. Each one describes a region's most interesting houses, churches, towns and landscapes, together with its folklore and history.
Often known as the Black Country, Staffordshire has a reputation for being a gritty industrial centre; yet Mee's 1937 guidebook describes a county rich in both natural beauty and historic towns and villages, from the winding River Trent to Lichfield's twin-spired cathedral. Reprint.
