Ask me anything   My Artwork   

these are a few of my favorite things:

book-aesthete:

Foundling Mick Jules Verne. (P’tit Bonhomme) 8vo, 1895.
A very scarce Jules Verne title. First English edition, 76 plates, small bookseller’s label to front pastedown. ____________________________________________________The town of Westport, in the privince of Connacht, is situated on Clew Bay. This bay is one of the most beautiful along the entire seaboard of Ireland; its capes, promontories, and points are ranged like so many sharks’ teeth which bite the incoming rollers. It is at Westport that we are to find little Mick in the dawn of his life’s story; we shall see where, when, and how that story comes to its end.   ~Opening Paragraph

book-aesthete:

It’s All in the Draw 1895
Humorous at the game of poker, with pictures of cards facing witty passages about the game. On the verso of the ninth leaf is an advertisement for the United States Cartridge Company, and on the recto of the final leaf (wrapper) is a reproduction of a print of hunters around a campfire, two deer strung from a tree. OCLC/WorldCat lists only six copies in institutional libraries.
