The Constitutional History of England from the Accession of Henry VII to the Death of George II (2 Vols)

£29.99

Product description

Sixth edition in two volumes. Original brown calf hard covers with ridged spines & gilt decoration. Much of the gilt has worn away. The bindings are rather scuffed and worn, the tops and bases of the spines are bumped with a loose sliver of calf at the top of vol 1. There are some old Sellotape repairs – on the spine name plate of vol 1, on the front board of vol 1, at the front hinge of vol1, at the top of the spine of vol 2. The boards are still attached to the text block of vol 1 but the hinges are cracked. The text block of vol 2 is only attached to the boards by a single old Sellotape repair at the top of the front hinge, it is completely detached at the rear hinge. Marbled endpapers and page edges all round. Gift inscription dated 1851 on second free endpaper of vol 1. Foxing on the endpapers but the main text appears to be unaffected. The binding of the text blocks is tight and suggests that these books have never been read. Very light tanning around the margins of the text pages. A pair of books in need of some restoration.

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.
