About this product
- DescriptionExcerpt from The Spring Song 'So fair a summer look for never more.' - Thomas Nashe. Leaning back against the leather cushion of the railway-carriage, Griffith Weston was conscious of an endless parama of fields and meadows, of green hedges and white hawthorn, and blazing, yellow furze. The whole landscape was bathed in a crude glare of June sunlight, and the heat, and the vivid glittering light, and the rushing train, made his head ache. He wore a light, loose, flannel suit, without a waistcoat, and his wide short trousers left his knees bare. A dark olive-green silk tie brought out unnecessarily the sallowness of his complexion; his straw hat lay on the seat beside him. He was t in the least a handsome boy, but his expression was pleasing. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
