Lady Cecilie Goff:
A Woman of the Tudor Age.

London: John Murray, 1930. First edition. xviii, 326, illustrated, including two foldouts - a genealogy and a panorama, and with an addendum slip tipped in at p.vii. Faint pencilled 1936 gift inscription to front fly (readily erased). An account centred on the life of Katherine Willoughby, Duchess of Suffolk. The pages are clean but for a little spotting to the prelims and index. The severe and obtrusive foxing spots which affect the closed edges of the text block encroach a few mm onto the page edges. In the original binding of smooth blue cloth, with gilt spine title and front decoration, bright and firm, faintly marked, corners sharp, with slight puckering to the spine ends. A good copy of a very scarce title. VG.

Martin Gilbert:
Plough My Own Furrow: The Story of Lord Allen of Hurtwood as told through his own writings and correspondence. [Clifford Allen].

London: Longmans, 1965. First edition. xiv, 442pp, illustrated with photographs. This is a prepublication copy with the publisher's job label on the front pastedown, giving the specification for the binding, and each of the plates has been checked with a biro slash or cross. Text clean and unmarked. Faint soiling to closed edges of text block. Firm, in the binding of black cloth with gilt spine title on a cerulean lettering-piece, bright. 'File Copy' blindstamped to lower corner of front board. Small scuffs to corners, foot of spine blunted. In the protected unclipped blue dust jacket. This is severely creased and scuffed to the bottom edge, and somewhat to the head of the spine, with further creasing to the back panel. There is negligible loss, and the portrait of Allen on the front is still good. The publisher's job number '1923' is written on the spine. A viable copy of a scarce title. Another of Britain's mistreated heroes. VG in poor dust-jacket.
