War and Peace Volume I: Before Tilsit

£250.00

Product description

Very early 1887 collectable edition of War and Peace Volume I - Before Tilsit. Published by Vizetelly & Co., Catherine Street, Strand. Original green cloth hard covers with titles on the front and spine in red and black. The titles on the spine are faint but just about legible. Edge and corner wear to the boards and bumping and wear at the top and base of the spine. The book is slightly shelf-cocked from poor storage. Very dark green endpapers where the hinges are cracked at both front and back. Other endpapers and the first and last few text pages are lightly foxed. The binding is still very sound with no loose pages. The top edge is untrimmed, some of the pages were originally still joined at the top edge when published but have been separated by early readers of the book. The text is clean and unmarked. Very rare edition in reasonable condition for its 130 years. Courier delivery due to the value of this volume.

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.
