Here for sale is a lovely antique book published around 1910, Stars Shown to the Children by Ellison Hawks. It has beautiful colour plates of stars and planets. This is a first edition and has a wonderful embossed cloth cover and spine. Perfect for any collector or just to enjoy.


Pages are tight. The front and spine are scuffed. The spine cover has sun damage and is discoloured. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
