Out of stock


Briscoe, John D’Auby, Sharp, Robert Lathrop and Murray Eugene Borish, A Mapbook of English Literature. Henry Holt and Company (New York), 1936, 48 pages, red cloth over boards. A fascinating book filled with maps notated with important places and people in English literature, covering three periods: up to 1660, 1660 to 1800, and 1800 to present (~1935). Map locations include Great Britain, London, The Lake Country, Wessex (Hardy Country), Ireland, and Europe; also with a list of principal writers who studied at Oxford and Cambridge, segregated by individual college. Sir Walter Raleigh, Oscar Wilde, and Charles Dodgson, anyone? A must for English literature scholars.

In near very good condition, with clean cloth covers but a little cloth loss at spine ends and a small nick in spine center with cloth loss. Interior is tight and very good, with former owner’s name and age toning to endpapers.
