Temporary home while I work out what to do with these:

My Box of Books

I'm mostly keen on doing periodicals & Richard Jefferies related works. But I keep acquiring random items at car boots. This is just a list of books I have, but not yet scanned or cleared. If anyone has a burning desire to see one of these, let me know and it'll get done next..

Periodicals aren't listed here, they're in the Periodicals listings.

Anonymous: Readings in Natural Theology

All About Everything (one of Beeton's "All About It" Books, 1871)

The Songs of Wales (ca. 1880; Music: about 60 songs, 204 pages)

Gaudeamus A selection of Songs for Colleges and Schools (ca. 1917: Music)

James Baldwin The Story of Roland -- there is a copyright clearance for this from July 2003. If it doesn't appear on PG within another year or so, this may get scanned.

May Baldwin A City Schoolgirl

The Boy Mechanic Vol.2 & 3 (also Volume 1, but that's already in PG [[1]])

James Branch Cabell Chivalry (first edition: illustrated. The second edition (In PG) was retconned to fit into Cabell's series of Manuel the Redeemer; almost every page of this edition has minor or major text differences from the second. Fairly low priority)

J. McLaren Cobban The White Kaid of the Atlas

The Empire Annual for Boys ca. 1916

Douglas English "Wee Tim'rous Beasties"

Julian Horatia Ewing We and the World (1910, illustrated: non-illustrated edition already in PG; low priority)

from Google books

In the UK, Google books blocks downloads of books from after 1870 or so, on the grounds they might be still in copyright. Fortunately, they don't block proxies... So I have PDFs of:

  • Bevis
  • The Scarlet Shawl
  • Restless Human Hearts
  • Green Ferne Farme
  • The Dewy Morn
  • World's End
  • Richard Jefferies A study by Henry Stephens Salt (1894)

Internet Archive

  • Bevis (2 different scan sets of the same edition!! And they look to be better scans than the Google)
  • Red Deer
  • Wild Life in a Southern County
  • The hills and the vale
  • Thomas, Edward, 1878-1917. - Richard Jefferies : his life and work.

I have these volumes to hand:

The Gamekeeper at home

These are in my local library system, and will get a loan request:

Salt, Henry S. (Henry Stephens), 1851-1939. - Richard Jefferies : his life and his ideals / by H.S. Salt. - Fifield, 1905.
