The Common Stream

Rowland Parker

Collins, London, 1975. Reprint. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. Green endpapers with b/w. map of area; This is the story of an English village - or perhaps more of the English village - for though the setting is Foxton, in Cambridgeshire, built around its now almost vanished stream, the essential facts are true of a myriad of such places all over England. For thirteen years Rowland Parker has devoted himself single-mindedly to discovering what went on in Foxton, from the first traces of human settlement two thousand years ago to the present day. By archaeological excavation, from early histories, from oral tradition, by long laborious research among the manor court rolls, the land tax returns, the wills, the terriers, the bishops' registers, he has built up a staggeringly complete picture of the village and those who lived in it. It is probably true to say that he has found out more about the history of Foxton than is known about any other village of comparable age in Engla ... Read more

privately published, Foxton, Cambridgeshire, 1973. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Signed by Author. The author is an ex-schoolmaster who retired seven years ago after serving thirty-seven years on the staff of the Central School - later the Boys' Grammar School - at Cambridge, and has been busier in retirement than he ever was at 'work'. Since 1946 he has lived in Foxton, the location of the cottage whose history is the subject of this book. 'Cottage on the Green', out-of-print for several years, has been re-issued in response to a demand which could not have been anticipated when the original limited edition came out, for then the Common Stream', of which it is the progenitor, had not been written. The twelve-year process of unearthing and sifting material for this book, in which the history of one small house is traced in detail over a period of nearly five hundred years, resulted in a mass of information which the author moulded into the story of ...

Illustrator: Photo's. b/w. map frontis; "Side by side, the M.A. and the mechanic, men in broad cloth and boys in fustian." John Pink was describing users of the Cambridge Free Library (in "The Cambridge Public Free Library, Its Rise and Progress", Cambridge, 1882), but his words are still relevant and apply to the people we meet in the pages of this book.

Unlike many historians of Cambridge, Sara Payne studies the whole community, giving equal attention to town and gown. She takes us inside the colleges, offices and shops that dominate the streets of the city centre to meet the individuals behind counter or desk; and she goes into the homes of citizens to learn their stories and memories, which have been recorded in no other book - an impressive ...

Thames & Hudson, London, 1979. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Geomancy, literally 'earth divination', is to do with the subtle relation between man and his natural surroundings. Today technology and the urbanization of the countryside have blunted our sensitivity to nature: the once universal concern with correct location, definition, siting, orientation and proportion, as matters of psychic or spiritual rather than aesthetic importance, has been devalued and dismissed. Now Nigel Pennick has traced the outlines of the old knowledge through the fascinating but garbled information contained in folklore, legend, superstition, myth, ethnography and esoteric doctrine. He shows how primitive man's instinctive and reverential feel for the country developed, with the beginning of. a settlement, into a need to 'fix' the free­flowing earth energy at certain points which became temples, shrines, churches. Vast earth images, alignments of sacred si ... Read more

Methuen, London, 1961. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/Good. green end-papers; When he went up to Cambridge to do research on the later novels of Henry James, Noel Perrin followed the example of many other young Americans: he buried his passport under a pile of socks and tried to be more English than the English. He deceived everyone, with the disastrous exception of the local English soldiery. This anecdote opens a most entertaining volume of essays and stories. Noel Perrin will be familiar to readers of Punch, The New Statesman and The New Yorker, and this first collection of his writing shows him fantastic, humorous (at times in a gently academic vein) and always acute in his observation of modern life. He makes a thwarted effort to hear nightingales sing in Madingley Wood. He has a calamitous ski-ing holiday in Switzerland. He investigates a pigeon-kicking society at Columbia University. He observes the sisterly pressure which brought 'Monk' Lewis to turn his no ... Read more
