The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

The Conqueror's Doomsday Book stopped short at the foot of the Cumberland fells; for in the heights of what is now the Lake District stood the entrenched Vikings, indomitable and unconquerable, and not all the resources of Norman England could break into the last Norse stronghold. Their defence, their shield ring, was not only the high barrier of the fells; it was the fanatical Norse spirit of the battle, the burning determination to hold out against overwhelming odds.
