The Broad Highway 1910 1st Edition by Jeffery Farnol

Illustrated by C E Brock and Published by Sampson Low, Marston & Co Ltd

 Embossed gilt lettering to cover and spine with colour illustration, hand cut pages, and illustrations with tissue guard. Both hinges are perfect, a great addition to any library. 

Synopsis: Peter, being independent in spirit, declines to marry a person whom he does not know and taking his ten guineas starts out on “The Broad Highway” to seek his fortune. He meets with all sorts of thrilling adventures, is soon robbed of his money and left penniless.

Peter Vibart, nobleman and scholar decides to become a village smith rather than inheriting a fortune by courting Lady Sophia. Peter, of course, is no ordinary smith and his village is populated by colorful characters who dance in and around the central plot. He rescues Charmain Brown from his dastardly cousin, and since she has no where else to go, she stays with him. Charmain is Peter's opposite and the byplay between characters is timeless.

Hey I just wanted to say how wonderful I think your shop and the mail order subscription service is. I am always excited to receive my book and the personal service you offer in choosing them each time is just AMAZING. I was literally blown away to get my last couple of books that were Star Trek after my initial notes saying how much I like that genre. You deserve all the success in the world because your great! Thank you!!! Kevin

Good afternoon, this may be a little random, but I have had an experience due to your shop!
I popped in a couple of weeks ago and picked-up a book for my grandma related to WW1 and Castle Donington. Through her reading of the book, we discovered that it had some relatives in it. We found out more information about our family history and how they passed in the war. I used this information to undertake some online/Facebook research and I am now in contact with some Austrian relatives.
A 10-minute trip to you has led to a lot!

"This fabulous bookshop is quirky, welcoming - an absolute treasure trove. The time's I've challenged the team to find a certain book for me and never have they let me down. Now when I go in they make suggestions of books they think I may enjoy and even keep books to one side for me if I'm not about for a day or two.

They also provide the most wonderful monthly subscription to my Mum - a cosy crime novel each month. As I live a good distance from her it's lovely to hear her excitement when she receives her book and to talk about what has been sent on the 'phone. A great gift thoughtfully delivered by an knowledgeable, wonderful team. Thank you and keep up the wonderful work! You are, without a doubt, my favourite shop in all the world! x" Rachel in Wales
