Margrave Of The Marshes - John Peel & Sheila Ravenscroft

Bantam, 2005, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.

2nd Printing. Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Despite the number of claims in publishers’ blurbs, not many people actually achieve the status of legend in their own lifetime. John was writing this extraordinary book when he died in October 2004. It has now been completed by the woman who knew him best, his wife Sheila Ravenscroft, with help from their four children. The first half of the book, written by John, describes with characteristic humour his early life, from child to man, including his school days and National Service. The second section, written by Sheila, completes the story, giving us an intimate portrait of the man and his music, and the highs and lows of everyday life at their home in Suffolk.”
