Thorndike - Dr Syn books

Thorndike initially wrote a single book in 1915  Dr Syn , which was the entire story from birth to death. The scarecrow

was created and it was all based on life on the marshes. Such was the success of the book that some 20 years later,

six further books were written basically expanding the story and taking it effectively before  Dr Syn and then again to

death in the final book. I have all the books and several spare copies; I am not interested in selling them though.

Some of the books are quite rare now and I will put some info about each book in the sections below. I have asked

others I know who have an interest to review their favourite books. Where none are covered there is my review.
