Product description

Very scarce first edition 1886. Red cloth hard covers with gilt titles on the front and spine; boards have blind-stamped outlining and bevelled edges. Front board has extensive discolouration/splash/mildew marks particularly at the left side and along the lower edge. Rear board is less marked but has a couple of splash marks near the lower edge and some surface soiling around the margins. The spine is darkened and mottled, with bumping and chipping at the top and base, and a tear in the cloth along the front hinge for about 5cm down from the top edge then across the spine. Gilt page edges all round. Hinges are cracked at the pastedowns. Small rubber-stamped name on the front pastedown. The first and last free endpapers are a little discoloured with watermarks along the lower edges of the rear endpapers.
Printed on thick paper stock. 14 tipped-in crisp and sharp albumen photos, sepia-tinted, 1 woodcut-engraved architectural plate, woodcut head- and tail-pieces, borders around text blocks. First edition of this scarce architectural & local history of the churches, rectory, and vicarage of Upton, Chalvey, and Slough, which until the reforms of 1894 were known as Upton-cum-Chalvey. Until 1974, the hamlets were located in Buckinghamshire, but are now in Berkshire, England. Upton's Norman Church was begun in 1121 by Gilbert Norman and Henry I, by the Convent of Augustinian Cannons at Merton. The church of St Lawrence, Upton, was the marriage and burial place of Sir William Herschel, famed astronomer who discovered the planet Uranus. Also included with the book are several newspaper cutting from the early 20th century about re-building the Parish Church, completing the steeple and the unveiling of a new stained glass window.

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.
