£19.99

Product description

Published in 1838 in Edinburgh. Half bound with calf spine and corners and green cloth boards. The outer calf layer of the spine is missing, the remaining calf strips on the boards and at the corners are worn and darkened. The green boards have surface soiling and discolouration. The boards are detached but the binding of the text block is tight. No inscriptions. Some foxing spots on the title and endpapers but the text appears to be clean. There are three volumes bound together; the first is 'The Life of Robert Burns with a Criticism on his Writings originally published in connection with the works of Burns in 1800: Here considerably extended by additional particulars, many of which were never before made public'  76 pages and dated 1838. The second volume is 'The Prose Works of Robert Burns with the notes of Currie and Cromek, and many by the present Editor' 134 pages and dated 1839. The third volume is 'The Poetical Works of Robert Burns to which are now added Notes illustrating Historical, Personal, and Local Allusions.' 148 pages dated 1838.

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.
