Marbled endpapers, the first free (marbled) endpaper is missing. The hinges have completely detached from the text block at the pastedowns and old, failed sellotape repairs are visible. The first five endpapers are detached. Foxing on the endpapers and occasionally in the text. No inscriptions and the bulk of the binding od the text block is sound. Priced for condition.

Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
