Silex Scintillans; A Sixteenth Century Anthology; In Memoriam (Three Volumes)

£19.99

Product description

Three volumes from the Gresham Publishing Company with matching binding. Green cloth hard covers with gilt titles and decoration on the spines; the spines are all equally sunned. Beautiful covers decorated in Art Nouveau style in green and gilt. Mirrored on the spine and similarly illustrated on the endpapers. Gilt top edges, untrimmed fore and lower edges, first and last free endpapers are tanned. A few foxing spots on the fore edges. Binding is tight on all volumes and none has any inscription. A Sixteenth Century Anthology edited by Arthur Symons contains songs, work by Spenser, Raleigh, Marlowe, Shakespeare, Campion and others. Silex Scintillans is a volume of religious poetry by Henry Vaughan published originally in 1650. In Memoriam by Alfred Lord Tennyson has an analysis by the Rev. F. W. Robertson and an introduction by Alice Meynell. Many of the untrimmed pages are still joined at the fore edge suggesting that none of the volumes have ever been read.

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.
