Vol 1: 352 pages; vol 2: 287 pages; vol 3: 323 pages. All three volumes have gilt stamped decorations to boards and spine. Titles to spine are gilt stamped in red and black inserts. All spines are quite faded and rubbed in places. All 3 have engraving frontispieces. Volume 1 - part of spine has rubbed away and the red insert is loose. Back board of this volume is also very worn. Front board to volume 3 is also worn but not so severely. All volumes have decorative front and rear eps. Volumes 2 and 3 still have silk page markers but volume 1's is missing. There is some foxing/browning in places throughout all the volumes but it is relatively minor considering the age of the books and the text is generally clear. All three bindings appear sound.

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
