Old Rhyme

Oh, for a booke and a shadie nooke,
Eyther in-a-doore or out;
With the grene leaves whisper'ring overhede,
Or the strete cryes all about.
Where I maie reade all at my ease,
Both of the newe and olde;
For a jollie goode booke whereon to looke
Is better to me than golde.

The Wayside Book

The Wayside Book by Gilbert Rumbold - This gorgeous book by Gilbert Rumbold I think is a real ttreasure. It ambles around the country in the year of 1934, illustrated brightly in orange green and white - very art deco in appearance, ,illustrating the treasures of the British countryside from Kent Oast houses, to Ann Hathaway's Cottage, but with an emphasis on Inns, and hotels - and musings such as why ancient man did not scratch 'Homio Sapiens loves Eliza Piltdown' in Wookey Hole Caves. A 1st edition, in its dustwrapper, of this delight costs only £6.00 plus postage on our website - simply click on the illustration and follow to purchase (unless someone has beaten you to it and bought it already!).
