SET OF 15 Decorative Books. Antiquarian, Early 1900's Children's Stories.
A collection of 15 books with highly decorative and ornate spines and covers, for instant "library" effect and high impact bookshelf styling.
All of these are children's stories from the early 1900's, lots of them have gorgeous "antique gold" effect titles and "Art Nouveau" inspired illustrated covers.
A wonderful, delightful, mix of colours and content to amuse and inspire!
They are all over 100 years old, genuine antiquarian books.
In amazing condition, for their age, they are gently "scuffed" and "distressed" from years of genuine use, and some of the pages are delicate and loose. Most of these books have bookplates inside the covers, as they were given as school (or Sunday school) prizes, I've left them exactly as I found them because they're authentic.
Most importantly they have that "old book smell" reminiscent of libraries and bookshops from a by-gone era - fabulously comforting.
When lined up on a bookshelf they stretch a huge 62cms (2 feet 4") long. Each book is approx. 19cms - 20cms (7½"- 7¾") tall and approx. 12cms - 14cms (4¾"- 5½") deep.
Altogether they weigh 8kgs/ 17.6 lbs.
