As battles over literary censorship continue to rage on, it's vitally important to understand the background of this debate. In this fascinating volume, Farrer catalogs centuries of censorship in England, detailing the books that were identified as prurient, blasphemous or otherwise harmful to the public and doomed to burn. Targeted books range from mysterious volumes of occult knowledge to seemingly innocuous works of history that somehow offended the reigning royals.
