Twelfth Night

The Secret Garden


I’ve also been introduced to Tartarus Press by friends, and am revelling in some of their publications. A recent acquisition is M R James' Ghost Stories.

And, as ever, there are are lots of wonderful antiquarian books. A couple of recent purchases are Morton's Monastic Annals and Mark Akenside's Pleasures of Imagination.


We were particularly thrilled with our recently acquired Folio edition of Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde. This edition has Eric Gill illustrations throughout the text, and is certainly one of the nicest Folio books I have ever seen.

We were so delighted to find Troilus and Criseyde from High Barn Books, such an excellent online bookshop.
