Baudenkmaeler in Grossbritannien, Two Volumes

£200.00

Product description

Two volumes, first edition 1894. Green cloth covered boards joined by cloth spine; boards have edge and surface scuffing with some scratch marks and a small splash mark on the front of volume I. There are short tears at the tops of the hinges of both volumes but otherwise the hinges are very sound. The tapes attached to the boards to tie together to hold the contents in place have mostly been damaged or lost with only a couple of pairs still intact. The contents of both volumes are in loose leaf form; volume I has title pages, 16 pages of text in German, a list of the plates with short text in German, and about 80 full page photographic plates in black & white. Volume II has title pages and about 90 full page photographic plates in black & white. There is age tanning around the edges of some of the plates and one of the title pages is foxed. Wear to the edges of some of the pages. This was the greatest photographic survey of English architecture published up to this time, nearly a quarter of a century before England produced anything comparable. Many little known dwelling houses included as well as the major cathedrals, stately homes, castles and university colleges. Very heavy, over 10kg, therefore incurs extra courier charge. Price adjusted to reflect this.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. 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.
