Selections Longfellow

£14.99

Product description

The miniature book, believed to be early-20th century, contains 12 poems by Longfellow, including "The Wreck of the Hesperus", selected by the then well-known author B.B. The book is bound in soft brown leather with a gold embossed border line and the title in gold print on the front and spine. The page edges are gold blocked.

The covers are clean, but faded at the spine and show damage at the edges and spine. The binding is complete, but loosening with the covers and pages appearing to be fully attached. The pages appear to be free from damage and clean apart from a dedication in blue ink, dated "Christmas 1924" opposite the pre-title page.

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.
