The Beatles lyrics : the stories behind the music, including the handwritten drafts of more than 100 classic Beatles songs by Hunter Davies( Book )
6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 682 libraries worldwide
The definitive book of Beatles songs, shown as first written by their own hands and put into authoritative context, for the 50th anniversary of the Beatles coming to America. For the Beatles, writing songs was a process that could happen anytime -- songs we all know by heart often began as a scribble on the back of an envelope or on hotel stationery. These original documents have ended up scattered across the world at museums and universities and with collectors and friends. Many have never been published before. More than 100 songs and lyrics are reproduced in THE BEATLES LYRICS, providing Hunter Davies a unique platform to tell the story of the music. The intimacy of these reproductions -- there are sections crossed out and rewritten, and words tossed into the final recordings that were never written down -- ensures that THE BEATLES LYRICS will be a treasure for musicians, scholars, and fans everywhere
A biographical study of the father of railways George Stephenson, on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the opening of the world's first public railway, the Stockton and Darlington, 1825- 1975, including an account of railway mania and a consideration of Stephensonia today by Hunter Davies( Book )
22 editions published between 1975 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 354 libraries worldwide
An affectionate but frank portrait of the inspired, self-taught, often testy and pig-headed Geordie, George Stephenson and his famous Rocket are both household names, and yet the man behind the birth of the railways is still a shadowy figure to most people. Until this book, little had been written about him since Samuel Smiles's biography in 1857. Hunter Davies set out to remedy this. After three years of research, he has created a memorable human portrait not only of a great Victorian, but also of an original and remarkable man

On 18 May 1932, Kate Hodder gave birth to a baby girl at Birchfield House Infirmary near Sevenoaks in Kent. Three and a half hours later, a baby boy was born. And then, forty minutes on, a second girl was delivered. But the joy at the birth of triplets - a very rare event in the 1930s - was to prove short-lived. Kate died the following day. Her husband Wills was soon struggling to cope with their six previous children, so the decision was made to offer the triplets up for adoption. Remarkably, aged sixty-nine, the three triplets were reunited. Here, their astonishing story charts their three different upbringings, and the struggles and detective work that brought them back together

Once you discover these museums Great Britain won't look quite the same again
