Gwen Wynn: A Romance of the Wye

£19.99

Product description

Swan Sonnenschein & Co. 1889. Reid, Mayne. Condition: very good. Fading, marks and signs of wear all over cover and spine. Some browning and foxing on some pages. Spine still in good condition. Contains a few black and white illustrations.

"Hail to thee, Wye - famed river of Siluria! Well deserving fame, worthy of warmest salutation! From they fountain-head on Plinlimmon's far slope, where thou leapest forth, gay as a girl on her slip-rope, through the rugged rocks of Brecon and Radnor, that like rude men would detain thee, snatching but a kiss for their pains - on, as woman grown, with statelier step, amid the wooded hills of Herefordshire, which treat thee with more courtly consideration - still on, and once more rudely assailed by the bold ramparts of Monmouth - through all thou makest way - in despite all, preserving thy purity!" - Prologue
