Product description

Scarce edition. Author's illustrated edition 1876, appears to be first edition thus. Green cloth hard covers; front board has gilt titles, black stamped pattern and black/green/gilt illustration; rear board has some surface scuffing and blind stamped outlining; spine has green titles on gilt and black backgrounds. Light edge wear, more extensive wear at the corners where the underlying card is just visible, wear and fraying at the top and base of the spine and along the hinge lines. The hinges are cracked at the front and rear pastedown exposing the underlying webbing but the boards are still securely held; the binding of the text block is a little loose but sound, with a hinge crack at p128-129. Gilt page edges now rather dull. No inscriptions.

Two classic stories from Jules Verne plus a 16 page List of New Books at the rear of the text block.

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.
