I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. A wonderful book, Olga. I have ordered this for my dad for Fathers day. I hope it gets here in time.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. It is gorgeous and I’m sure he’ll appreciate it. Fingers crossed it gets there in time. Have a lovely week!

  2. As you might imagine, this has gone straight onto my Amazon wish list. The hardback of course, as I don’t think Kindle can do this justice. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Oh, yes, the hardback is perfect. I agree. I don’t think Kindle would work quite as well. To be honest, just having it on display more than makes up for the price. You might want to check the Pen & Sword website as well, as they regularly offer discounts. I hope you have a fabulous week. 🙂

  3. Fantastic review, Olga. I think this would make a great coffee table book- the kind you pick up now and then to enjoy 🙂

    1. You’re absolutely right, Jacquie. It’s a joy to just go through it every so often. Have a great week.

    Wonderful review and interesting to learn about this book, thanks Olga <3

    1. Hiding in the spam folder again, Debby. Thanks! It is one of those books that are beautiful as objects as well as fascinating by their content. It must have been very expensive to produce at the time. Have a fabulous week!

        Oh, I can imagine! And thanks for fishing me out of the dumpster again Olga. LOL 🙂 x

        1. Any time! 😉

  5. Hi Olga. Different indeed, but in a great way. Thanks for your insights and details. This really does sound like a treasure of a book. Hugs!

    1. It sure is, Teagan! Have a wonderful week. Hugs!

    1. You’re right, Sally. It’s one of those books where you keep finding new things every time you check. Have a fabulous day. ♥
