The Forsyte Saga - Six Volume Set

£50.00

Product description

Complete set of six small novels which comprise the Forsyte Saga - The Man of Property, In Chancery, To Let, The White Monkey, The Silver Spoon, Swan Song. Undated but appear from the illustrated dust jackets to be c1931. All have maroon cloth hard covers with gilt titles and decoration on the spine and front; the gilt on some of the spines has discoloured. The front hinge on two of the volumes (Swan Song & The White Monkey) has separated from the text block. Text pages are age-tanned. No inscriptions. The six dust jackets all have some edge wear, three of them have a little more damage with short tears and chipping. The novels chronicle the vicissitudes of the leading members of a large commercial upper-middle-class English family. Only a few generations removed from their farmer ancestors, the family members are keenly aware of their status as "new money". The main character, Soames Forsyte, sees himself as a "man of property" by virtue of his ability to accumulate material possessions—but this does not succeed in bringing him pleasure.

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.
