This is a quick post while I am out and about. I bought a wonderful book this afternoon. Although the original publication is a lovely one (with game boards and a ruler printed on the endpapers) it is not this that is most wonderful. Rather, it is that a previous owner has left their touch throughout and made a unique item of this copy, something a freshly printed book cannot offer. I am fortune to have a couple other such books, one from within my family, and they are truly delightful.
