A fantastic collection of vintage books. All three are cloth bound and have the most wonderful pictorial embossed covers. Not dated but we believe date from the early part of the 20th century. They have black and white plates, do look at the photos of some of them. A lovely set, perfect as a gift or to read and enjoy.


Bumped corners and spine. Foxing to some pages. 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.
