Seller ID   001123

Undated but most likely between 1830 -1850. 190 pages + 11 illustrations, binding Good, looks like horn, bone or ivory? With red spine & remains of silver locking clasp. Contents tight. A good reading copy, some nibbling of base of some pages, some staining. contains 11 illustrated pages (most still with tissue protection), lacks the frontice illustration, Looks as if rebound using original boards & new red spine with gilt title, new mottled endpages. condition of binding would be very good if part of the silver locking clasp was complete. It states second thousand, printed by Thomas Albin at Spalding. But as this type of pocket-book / forget-me-not were sold to be given as gifts at Christmas & visiting gifts, very few survive, In fact at time of listing I could not find another copy on the net, just reference to it.

Forget Me Not Book

Price = 50.00 GBP
