£15.99

Product description

Full title reads: Memoirs of the Public and Private Life of Her Most Gracious Majesty Caroline, Queen of Great Britain, and Consort of King George the Fourth. Containing ample details of the unhappy differences between their majesties, and of the proceedings connected with the Queen's return to this country. Second edition 1820. Brown leather covered boards which are detached and worn; fragile brown leather spine with faded gilt decoration and wear and chipping. The endpapers are detached from the text block but all seem to be present; the title page is darkened and chipped but the text is clear. The text block itself is still tightly bound with some foxing but is generally very good This book is now nearly 200 years old and is one of the earliest editions published after the death of the popular Queen Caroline in 1821. Although the covers are in poor condition the text block is very good, and it is priced accordingly. It would be a good study copy or a rebinding project.

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.
