Varnished Leaves: a biography of the Mander family of Wolverhampton, 1742-1998
by Nicholas Mander

This is the first two chapters of Nicholas Mander's excellent new book. It covers the six Charles Manders in succession, up to, and including Nicholas himself. Nicholas has kindly allowed us to include the text from the first two chapters. We have added the screen decoration and images, and have also split it up into sections for convenience, as the work in its entirety would take a long time to download.
