This week, in a very special In My Mailbox, I got some old books (cloth bound! Eeep!) from my Great Aunties, and my grandmama’s attic! So In My Attic, I found-
Southern Belle by Mary Craig Sinclair
Angelique by Gertrude Crownfield (Have any of you ever seen Dark Shadows?)
A Little Girl of Long Ago by Eliza Orne White (Do you see that cover?!)
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier (Rebecca is one of my all time favorite books, and this is a near first edition! I started squeking and jumping when I found this! Cue a happy dance!)
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (Another old, old classic! I’ve never read it and now I get to read this copy, it’s so exciting! Then I think I’ll read Jane by April Lindner, though I don’t have a copy yet…hmm…)
Too Many Women by Maysie Greig
The Sea Gull by Kathleen Norris
Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransom (The inscription reads- to the six for whom it was written in exchange for a pair of slippers.)
Roget’s College Thesaurus (this is my mum’s copy and she wrote her name in it when she was my age, so amazing!)
Let me know the greatest book you’ve found in an antique store, or in an attic, magazine’s would count too, I would love to discover a Vouge from some distant year.
And as for Contests...
