Household Stories (2 Volumes)

£300.00

Product description

The two volumes contain German folk stories collected by The Brothers Grimm "Newly Translated" into English. The books are illustrated with "two hundred and forty" monochrome drawings by Edward H. Wehnert appearing above the title of each story and as full-page illustrations.

The thick marbled card half covers with black leather corners and spine/hinges are complete and clean, but show some wear at the edges and hinges. The bindings are complete but loosening with some pages in Volume 2 being loose. The pages appear to be generally clean and free from damage although occasional pencil marking has been seen and a few of the pages in Volume 2 are torn.

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.
