Odds and Ends Regarding The Book House
I have been collecting My Book House books for a long time. I have need of just ONE more to have the complete set! If anyone has a spare Volume 1 with a light green cover laying around, please let me know. I looked through my new-to-me Volume 2 last night, just randomly reading bits and enjoying the pictures.
I so love the colors of vintage books. You just don't get them with reproductions! Speaking of reproductions, Dover is reprinting My Book House. I have seen that the first two volumes are published and ready for purchase. Volume One Volume Two If you can't get the originals, these seem to be a suitable substitute. I haven't seen them in real life to compare the quality of the illustrations, though. Do use Amazon's "Look Inside" feature in the links above. They have nice samples available.
