Like Christmas, but better.


Paul Gustave Dore by Felix Nadar.
We have just acquired a rather large collection of older books, everything from a 1908 edition of Eliza Actons 'The People's Book of Modern Cookery' - to a rather wonderful 'Don Quixote', illustrated in a suitably Gothic manner by Gustave Dore, the man who created the image we still have today of the knight and his squire. Also a rare set of 'The Works of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte' in twelve volumes from 1896 (J.M. Dent).


The Bronte Sisters- possibly.
