Cornish Days - Limited Edition - Signed by Kenneth B Saunders

£40.00

Product description

Limited edition, this is copy 37 of 50. Inscribed and signed by Kenneth B Saunders, elder son of Harold N Saunders. Corners a little rubbed and bumped, title strip just starting to peel from spine, contents (apart from the inscription) clean and bright, iv+175 pages including family tree. Weight 575g. Ref. BL. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

From the introduction:

This book is about Harold (HNS) and his mother, Lydia Brown Saunders (LBS). The first part consists of HNS's childhood diaries. Begun when he was four years old, and initially dictated to his mother, it spans a decade and ends when he achieves first class honours in the Oxford Local Examinations. The diary is printed as written. In his own contributions it transcribes the spelling and grammar which one would expect from a boy of his age.

The second part presents recollections of his early life, and of the secluded community in which he lived. Written during his eighties, the text remains untouched, but has been reorganised into chapters. Some additional material, not written by HNS, follows in Chapter Twelve.

The third part is an unedited transcription of a paper on Ancient Stratton by LBS. It was read by her at the Wesleyan Church, Stratton on February 23rd 1911, and repeated by request at the Church Room, Stratton on April 27th in the same year. It is intended to provide a local historical background.
