The Book of Arran: Two Volume Set

£400.00

Product description

Scarce set of two volumes: vol I is Archaeology (1910); vol II is History and Folklore (1914). Both with brown buckram hard covers, gilt emblem on the fronts, green title plates on the spines with gilt titles. General light shelf wear, and the title plates on the spine of vol II are scuffed and a little faded. Gilt top edges, untrimmed fore and lower edges. Bindings are tight. Small owner name at the tops of the first free endpapers. Some light foxing on the end pages. Many plates, drawings and tables; vol I should have a map in the pocket at the end of the volume but the pocket is missing and the map is tucked in between two index pages. Vol I, Archaeology, is divided into three sections: Prehistoric, Protohistoric and Historic periods. Vol II, History and Folklore, is mainly devoted to history with the final two chapters being Folklore and Gaelic Songs of Arran.

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.
