Lark Rise to Candleford, Flora Thompson
1 Flora Thompson Lark Rise to Candleford
Folio Society 236603 London 2010 Fourth Printing Hardcover (in Slipcase) Very Good Condition Sue Scullard Introduced by Kathryn Hughes. Flora Thompson's immortal trilogy, containing "Lark Rise", "Over To Candleford" and "Candleford Green", is a heartwarming portrayal of country life at the close of the 19th century. This story of three closely related Oxfordshire communities - a hamlet, the nearby village and a small market town - is based on the author's experiences during childhood and youth. It chronicles May Day celebrations and forgotten children's games, the daily lives of farmworkers and craftsmen, friends and relations - all painted with a gaiety and freshness of observation that make this trilogy an evocative and sensitive memorial to Victorian rural England.With a new introduction by Richard Mabey 512 pages. Previous owners name on front endpaper. Illustrator: Sue Scullard. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Literature; Literature & Literary; Rare & Collectible::Folio Society.

Travels With Charley in Search of America, John Steinbeck
2 John Steinbeck Travels With Charley in Search of America
The Folio Society 236591 London 2010 Seventh Printing Hardcover (in Slipcase) Very Good Condition John Holder In September 1960, John Steinbeck embarked on a journey across America. He felt that he might have lost touch with the country, with its speech, the smell of its grass and trees, its color and quality of light, the pulse of its people. To reassure himself, he set out on a voyage of rediscovery of the American identity, accompanied by a distinguished French poodle named Charley; and riding in a three-quarter-ton pickup truck named Rocinante. His course took him through almost forty states: northward from Long Island to Maine; through the Midwest to Chicago; onward by way of Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana (with which he fell in love), and Idaho to Seattle, south to San Francisco and his birthplace, Salinas; eastward through the Mojave, New Mexico, Arizona, to the vast hospitality of Texas, to New Orleans and a shocking drama of desegregation; finally, on the last leg, through Alabama, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey to New York. 243 pages. Previous owners name on front endpaper. Illustrator: John Holder. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Travel; Travel & Places; Rare & Collectible::Folio Society.

Zuleika Dobson or An Oxford Love Story, Max Beerbohm
4 Max Beerbohm Zuleika Dobson or An Oxford Love Story
The Folio Society 230847 London 2008 Hardcover (Embossed Cloth) Near Fine Condition Michael Kirkham Nobody could predict the consequences when ravishing Zuleika Dobson arrives at Oxford, to visit her grandfather, the college warden. Formerly a governess, she has landed on the occupation of prestidigitator, and thanks to her overwhelming beauty-and to a lesser extent her professional talents-she takes the town by storm, gaining admittance to her grandfather's college. It is there, at the institution inspired by Beerbohm's own alma mater, that she falls in love the Duke of Dorset, who duly adores her in return. Ever aware of appearances, however, Zuleika breaks the Duke's heart when she decides that she must abandon the match. The epidemic of heartache that proceeds to overcome the academic town makes for some of the best comic writing in the history of English literature. Decorative boards with cream slipcase in very good condition. Illustrator: Michael Kirkham. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Fiction; Rare & Collectible::Folio Society. Inventory No: 230847. Hardcover
