Hidden Book Treasure No 16: Happy Birthday
It was found nestled in a large collection of old childrens books once belonging to a young girl named Marion.The books were mostly from the early 1930's and had been very well cared for; paper covers intact & almost as bright as the day they were bought. The condition of book mark reflects this care.
The book it fell from was an almost perfect, early edition of, 'The Fairy Caravan' by Beatrix Potter. Just one of a whole box full of chilldren's literature delights, carefully chosen for a fledgling library.
It may come as no surprise to discover that each book within the collection was inscribed with love & best wishes from Mother & Dad.
