1886 Isis and Thamesis Hours on the River from Oxford to Henley
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Illustrated
In the publisher's original cloth binding. 12 plates and further vignettes accompanying the text. Collated, complete. Alfred Church's journey along the river begins at the Thames in Oxford, through Abingdon, Dorchester, Wallingford, Basildon to Henley-on-Thames. Each place comes with a description of the local area and the author's experiences there, and some very attractive engravings of scenes by the river. This is the first trade edition. A further limited edition was published with proof plates albeit in a less attractive binding. 2 pages of publisher's advertisements to the rear.
In the publisher's original cloth binding. Externally very smart, with a little wear to the extremities, joints, and head and tail of the spine. Minor bumping to the boards. Otherwise, colour is good and gilt is bright. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are generally bright and clean, with the odd spot throughout.
Very Good Indeed
