The Waverley Novels, Four Volumes

£80.00

Product description

The Waverley Novels by Sir Walter Scott, Copyright Edition Entire in four volumes, each with blue leather hard covers, gilt stamped decoration on the boards; spines with five raised bands, titles and gilt decoration. The spines are slightly discoloured and have some light surface wear with a little superficial damage at the top of the spine of volume I. Board edges have light wear. Page edges are gilt all round. Small owner name on second free endpaper. From the inscription at the beginning of volume I it appears that the set was rebound in 1908 but this rebinding is very professionally done and not obvious. The original gilt decorative panels have been incorporated. The inscription gives a history of the ownership of this set from 1908 to 1929 and there is another short inscription at the beginning of volume III which adds a bit more history. There is foxing on the endpapers. each novel has an engraving on its title page. A very good set of Scott's Waverley novels with tight binding and clear text.

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.
