Comyn's New Forest

£110.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Very scarce book, published in 1982 in a limited edition of 2000 copies of which this is number 689; underneath the book number is the signature of the author. Green cloth hard covers with gilt titles on the front and spine, there is very slight tinge of discolouration around the margins of the boards. The binding is tight, the text is clean and unmarked. There is a single word written on the front pastedown. The price clipped dust jacket has some light edge wear with a short (5mm) tear at the centre of the rear top edge; the margins of the back are lightly tanned.

This book, edited by Jude James, contains the record compiled by the Reverend Henry Comyn of the parishes of Boldre and Brockenhurst in the New Forest in 1817 in the last six months of his five year curacy. He put together a record for himself and his successors which was a house by house, village by village documentation of almost every parishioner's family and lifestyle. This came to light in 1962 and Jude James worked on them for some 18 years prior to their publication. Published in conjunction with Lymington Historical Record Society. An important and detailed local history record.

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.
