Preston Fight, or the Insurrection of 1715

£29.99

Product description

Preston Fight, or the Insurrection of 1715 - William Harrison Ainsworth

George Routledge and Sons. First edition 1879. pp 302

Red cloth boards with black decoration and gold titles to front and spine, all in a state of general disrepair. The years appear to have rather petrified the covers, resulting in a state of near rigidity. Marks, stains, chips, scratches and small tears to the boards. spine discoloured by exposure to sunlight.

The ffeps are damaged by foxing and tears etc. Owner signature to title page, in pencil. Early in the text block there is a major tear to the binding and the block is free of the book from that point up to p 273 (but remains as an intact structure). All pages tanned. The author seems to include six engraved illustrations in each of his many books and this one is probably the same, but only two nice illustrations actually seen.

Oxfam Bookshop Market Harborough

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller. Oxfam bookshops offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, classics, and rare or collectable books. We also stock an attractive range of greetings cards and a good selection of stationery. Come and browse!

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
