All the cottages and the museum part is very well done; and even if it had nothing to do with Shakespeare, it would be deeply interesting, showing the manners and customs of life in country villages in the time of Elizabeth. I am all for early marriages, but that he in honour married at nineteen a girl of twenty-seven may perhaps account for much that was probably a tragic life. How often a clever youth's first love is for a woman much older than himself! One little thing arrested my attention; the rushes used at the time to burn were not covered with grease till long after, but were merely the dried tall rushes from the riverside, held by a kind of candlestick that pinched the dried rush; an impatient soul who wanted more light doubled up his rush--thus the origin of the saying,' burning the candle at both ends,' which had never seemed to me very easy to explain. It was not till much later that what were called rush lights came in, first rushes dipped in grease and then cotton dipped in tallow--though they were still called rush-lights and used as night-lights in nurseries. I can just remember in my childhood these rush-lights that were stuck into Japan pails perforated all over with round holes, and these made strange patterns on the walls and ceilings--agitating to a feverish child. The memory of Shakespeare so overshadows everything at Stratf ord-on-Avon, it is difficult to think anything else really matters. The stone bridge is fine, and was built in Henry VII.'s time, so Shakespeare must often have crossed it. 'Plant Lore and Garden Craft of Shakespeare,' by Canon Ellacombe, as well as a little book by Sidney Beisly called' Shakespeare's Garden,' are rather fascinating for gardeners One of a number of similar Items I am selling.

MY GRADINGS

New:A new book, never used.

Fine (F):Should have no flaws, a perfect copy of a used book.

Mint:Another term for Fine.

As New (AN):Although a used book, it should appear unread with no flaws, just as when it was sold new.

Near Fine (NF):May show a small flaw, such as shelf wear, but nearly perfect and unread.

Very Good (VG):The broadest category for used books, this describes any average used book. May have small flaws, and has probably been read, but should appear overall clean and attractive.

Good (G):Will probably have significant wear or damage, although is still intact. Suitable for reading, but not necessarily a good gift copy. The old saying in bookselling is "good ain't good."

Fair:Another term forPoororReading Copy: Heavily worn or damaged, a poor book will be readable but not attractive. May have the odd page missing, but this will be noted on the relative listing.

Binding Copy: This will be the complete pages of the book, but the binding has been broken or damaged to the point it will need professional rebinding
