With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

Title   The Yule Log. A Carol.

Binding   Decorated Cloth

Book Condition   Near Fine

Original pen and ink and wash drawing of Olde English hamlet, snow and chidren, plus original verse by Crowquill. N.d., circa 1840s. 33 by 22 cm, and with matting, 51 by 41 cm. There are four staves without musical notation. Clearly the intention was to have a composer set Crowquill's words to music. Wonderful lyrics, with a powerfully evocative drawing on top, and the music staves and verses are laid over a backdrop of snowflakes and a gray brown that represents both the earth or the wintry sky.
