The Story of Morwenstow

£4.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Mary Tagert
R Clay & Sons Ltd, Bungay, Suffolk; nd, 3rd edition, c 1924.
Hardback booklet; 110 x 140 mm; light green boards with titles on cover with a pictorial of a roof boss of the Shield of David; 58 pages plus 2 unpaginated advertising other books published by John Lane, the Bodley Head Ltd, London. No dust jacket. Eleven monochrome photographs.
This small booklet is in fair condition. The covers are grubby. The binding is generally sound; there are no loose pages. But there is cracking along the gutter in places. There is some distortion to the fore edge of the leaves.
Morwenstow in Cornwall is the one-time home of the eccentric vicar and poet Robert Stephen Hawker (1803–1875), the writer of Cornwall's anthem Trelawny. Hawker is also credited with reviving the custom of Harvest Festivals. In this booklet the author presents a brief account of Morwenstow, the church, and its vicars including Hawker.
