London Collins 1972 0002114127 / 9780002114127 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
Gilt title on brown cloth boards which are very clean and unmarked with a hint of wear to spine tail and lower corner tips. Internally there is a small name to front endpaper else very clean, tight and unmarked. A Very Good+ copy. Dustjacket is price clipped. 510 pages, 29 illustrations and genealogical chart endpapers. Since the demolition work of Sir Lewis Namier and his followers biographers have fought shy of this tempting yet dangerously complex subject, and a new study of King George III was badly overdue. This most accomplished biography by Stanley Ayling of a richly human and critically important subject, written with wit, humour, a style of distinction, a sceptical yet never cynical intelligence and warm sympathy, based upon a lifetime's study. **** NOT EX LIB **** **** NOT BOOK CLUB **** **** A HEAVY VOLUME OF 1.0 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE EXTRA SHIPPING COST ****

2 Ayling, Stanley John Wesley
London Collins 1979 0002166569 / 9780002166560 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Near Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. 350 pages. 18 illustrations. The story of John Wesley is rich in improbabilities and contradictions: the champion of 'primitive' Christianity whose version of it swept the new machine-driven England; the friend of the common people who detested democratic ideas; the stickler for the rules whose success depended on breaking them; the advocate of celibacy who nevertheless married disastrously; the son of the Church of England who fathered in spite of himself a breakaway church. In his 53 years mission he covered by horse and chaise nearly a quarter of a million miles, preached over 40,000 sermons and published some 400 written works. A major contribution to the understanding of this enigmatic and immensely popular figure. **** NOT EX LIB ****
