The Stripling Thames : A Book of the River Above Oxford [1909]

£140.00

Product description

Published in 1909 by Fred S Thacker. Green cloth covers with gilt lettering, marbled green end papers.

A delightful, and scarce book of the river Thames above the city of Oxford. Published by the author himself; he takes the reader village by village from Wolvercote to its source. Packed with photographs, maps and sketches. It gives a very clear view of the life in villages around the Thames of a century ago, with insightful anecdotes of the author's own visits to the area. Includes a detailed and useful index.

The cover does have some rubbing wear on the edges of the spine, the spine is also a little discoloured. Some foxing spots on the pages and edges of the text block. However in a clean condition with sound binding.
