Old Times Re-Visited in the Borough and Parish of Lymington, Hants

£65.00

Product description

Second edition 1900. Original dark blue buckram hard covers with bevelled edge boards, gilt titles on the front and spine. Boards have surface and corner wear with some small white spots, spine is slightly discoloured with surface wear plus top and base are bumped and worn. Single owner name on first free endpaper. Endpapers are foxed. The binding is cracked in a couple of places but all pages are securely held. Fore and lower edges are untrimmed.

Portrait frontispiece, title page in red and black, and 21 plates (one double-page). King's work, first published in 1879, immediately established itself as the standard popular reference on the ancient New Forest town of Lymington; local interest generated the inevitable additions and corrections, but the planned second edition, incorporating the numerous addenda, was deferred by the author's death. This best edition, compiled and published by the author's son from his father's meticulous notes, benefits from much new material and many fresh illustrations.

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.
