A Commonplace Book

Front Cover
Hamish Hamilton, 2001 - Commonplace-books - 162 pages
When Sir Alec Guinness died in August 2000 at the age of 86, he left behind two exercise books filled with entries in his small, beautiful handwriting, together with a typed-up Introduction that suggests he planned to have the books published or broadcast in some way. Together they make up this commonplace book.
