A scarce copy of A Fowey Garland by Sir Arthur Quiller-CouchSir Arthur Quiller-Couch wrote two small books specifically to raise money for the Cottage Hospital in Fowey. They were called A Fowey Garland (1898) and My Best Book (1912). Each book was published in a limited edition of 300 copies and were signed and numbered by their author. They were sold to raise money for the Fowey Cottage Hospital Bazaar on the two years of their publication. These books are difficult to find. We currently have copy number 70/300 of A Fowey Garland for sale.

Forever England: Femininity, Literature and Conservatism Between the Wars In Forever England, the author, Alison Light argues that we cannot make sense of Englishness between the wars, or understand the changes within literary culture, unless we recognise how much ideas of national identity were bound up with notions of femininity and private life. She discusses the novels of Ivy Compton-Burnett, Agatha Christy and Daphne du Maurier. This is quite a difficult book to find and is an important text for those with a serious interest in Daphne du Maurier.
