I’m pleased to see that the Quennell’s classic Everyday life in Roman and Anglo-Saxon times has just arrived on Archive.org in downloadable form.

This had been the one book of the set that was not online, when I listed and linked the set in my 2014 post Everyday Life / Everyday Things. The PDF is very over-compressed, but still far better than the usual fare scanned by the Public Library of India (i.e. pictures always so dark that they’re effectively destroyed). The raw .JP2 scans are no better.

H.P. Lovecraft appears to have acquired the “marvellous set” of these books circa 1933.
