Red cloth hard covers with gilt titles and decoration on the spine and gilt decoration on the front; hard covers in near fine condition. Gilt top edge, untrimmed fore and lower edges which have some foxing. Binding is tight. Gift inscription on the first free endpaper signed by 'Wakefield of Hythe', presumed to be Charles Cheers Wakefield, 1st Viscount Wakefield, an English businessman who founded the Castrol lubricants company, was lord mayor of London and was a significant philanthropist. The book is dedicated to Viscount Wakefield of Hythe and in the Foreword he is stated as the donor of the art collection illustrated in the book.

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.
