Kim, thank you for bringing me along on your book journey! What a blessing to receive so many treasures! There's just something about old books that gives character more than anything else in a home!

Enjoy them all! Have a great week!

More wonderful treasures, how fun. I really like the drawing book, don't think I have ever seen an older "how to draw" book for children.

I loved seeing all your "new" books! I wish book covers were as beautiful as they were back then.

I'm almost done reading "Inside the Victorian Home" by Judith Flanders. SO DEPRESSING! I guess I truly didn't realize how miserable life was like in Victorian England! But I still recommend it! :)

Dearest Kim!

WHat a treasure trove of classics and the beautiful covers! I have been taking very old tattered books and have been removing the pages to use only the binding in altered book projects; it is fun! Thank you for coming to my ANGEL post. Have a wonderful week!! Anita

SO glad I found your lovely blog this morning! I love all things vintage--the Victorian era has always held a special place in my heart. I love beautiful old books like the ones you just received--lucky you!

I'll be back often to say hello--hope you have a beautiful day!
