It has a map! This is a loved book. The wear is more than just 150+ years of being it was read a few times probably.

This novel written in 1946 was a favorite of mine in high school, from my mom‘s small library from her childhood, set in the Reconstruction Era. Never thought I‘d see it in publication. But thanks to ebooks, here it is! And on sale!

“Very clever were some of their productions, pasteboard guitars, #antique lamps made of old-fashioned butter boats covered with silver paper, gorgeous robes of old cotton, glittering with tin spangles from a pickle factory, and armor covered with the same useful diamond shaped bits left in sheets when the lids of preserve pots were cut out.”

When looking for an entry for #quotsyapr19 (antique), I came across this collections of books left me by my Gear Aunt Blanche. Covered by hand in snakeskin, cowhide, and lamb, dating from between 1892 and 1899. A couple were also hand-tooled. The pages are brittle and delicate, but I insist on bringing them out every once in a while to see how they are doing.

Nute Nice! 1mo
