The Book of Martyrs or, Christian Martyrology Volume I

£24.99

Product description

The title page continues: “Containing an Authentic and Historical Relation of Many Dreadful Persecutions Against the Church of Christ, From the Death of Abel to the Beginning of the Nineteenth Century; Being a Particular Account of all the Martyrs of the Old and New Testaments, and the Ten Great Persecutions Under the Roman Emperors, With the Persecutions Exercised by the Papists in England, and Other Parts of Europe. Including Every Important Relaton in Fox’s Book of Martyrs. And also all the essential Parts of every Work on the Subject which has appeared since that Publication: the whole carefully revised, corrected, and amended; with some original Matter.” Published in 1811. Brown cloth hard covers with gilt titles on the spine. The spine is sunned, it is completely split away from the front board and has bumping and chipping at the top and base. The boards have corner wear, a little surface scuffing, and some gentle fading near the tops and spine edges. The front board and first couple of endpapers are partly detached but still attached to the text block near the top. A number of pages in the first part of the book, up to about p150, have red underlining of the text. One sheet, p127/128 is firmly bound but has edges which extend beyond the main text block, presumed to be a production fault. Pages are tanned, engraving illustrations also have foxing particularly around the margins and on the reverse.

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.
