The Fall of Somerset

£249.99

Product description

A rare and collectable first edition of The three-volume set of The Fall of Somerset by William Harrison Ainsworth. Published by Tinsley Brothers in 1877. Historical fiction set during the reign of Edward VI, the books following the fall from power of Edward Seymour, Duke of Somerset, beginning with the social unrest of 1649 and ending at Seymour's execution in January 1552.

The outside edges of all three volumes are scuffed and the title pages in each book are foxed (see photos). The texts and pages are in good condition, and the spines are not damaged.

Oxfam Bookshop Balham

Balham, or 'The Gateway to the South' as Peter Sellers once called it, is a bustling corner of south west London, situated between Clapham and Tooting. The area is well known for its comedy heritage, thanks in no small part to Sellers's sketch, as well as comedy circuit staple The Bedford Arms and famous residents Arthur Smith, Andy Zaltzman and Richard Herring. The area also hosts something of a literary heritage with DBC Pierre having written his Booker prize-winning first novel in Balham. Our bookshop is located on the busy High Road just down the road from the tube station which was bombed in October 1940, an event immortalised in Ian McEwan's Atonement.
