Rosemary Sutcliff’s notebook | 1992

Dates mattered to Rosemary Sutcliff; they matter in history; and in excellent historical fiction like hers. (See post yesterday, building on an article in The Guardian). From year to year she carried foreword notes about addresses, key contacts and the dates of her books, usually in a blue Challenge notebook. This page records the little story books for children that  she published with Hamish Hamilton. The notebook is here propped on her writing chair – a Captain’s chair.
