The Daisy Boy

WAS £80.00 £40.00

Product description

The novel, believed to have been published in about 1930, tells the story of the mid-19th century romance between an English aristocrat, Lord George English, and a commoner, Sarah Charlotte (Sally) Weaver. Understanding of the relationships between the main characters is helped by the inclusion of two pages of genealogical charts at the end of the text.

The mainly plain, green cloth, full covers appear to be clean and free from damage apart from slight curling at the corners and the top and bottom of the spine. The green colouring shows some fading, particularly on the spine. The front carries the title and author's initials in black print with a rectangular embossed indent around the edges. The spine carries the title, author and publisher's name and trademark in black print with, again, embossed indenting at top and bottom. The binding appears to be complete and all pages appear to be free from damage and clean apart from the front and back free endpapers which show foxing. The front fixed endpaper carries a pasted-on coloured drawing of two boys playing in a park with an elegant Victorian couple on a path behind. The front free endpaper carries an ex-libris label dated "Xmas 1931" and a single letter "B." in the bottom left corner. There is no dust jacket.

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.
