About this Item

Book itself is beautiful -- no defects of note. Clean and nice inside and out. The dustjacket shows tiny chips along the top front edge, but is otherwise without more of same. Only other fault is price clip to front endflap. Looks handsome in brand new mylar. Book was originally published in England under the ttle "The Stones of Le Thornet." Though a novel, it's based on historical research and is accompanied by photographs and notes. The author was a career architect who brings to the story the attributes of the Cistercian style as he assumes the voice of the builder from Provence. Book measures 5-3/4" x 8-1/2" and has 217 pages.

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
