My friend recently spent 3 weeks in England, where her family is from. One day last week, after she got back, she left me this book on my front porch while I was out. She said she saw it and thought I would love it. I do! It’s a gorgeous little book, with each page illustrated with at least a border, many pages have pictures. Some pictures are even in colour! This edition was published in 1910 by The Grolier Society, twenty years after the first edition was published.
Inside the book was a charming English postcard, complete with a recipe for Dorset Apple Cake. I intend to make it one day soon. The postcard is a much more pleasant surprise than the lock of hair I found in another old book of mine!
