A bundle of three beautiful antique and vintage books for girls, dating from 1900 to 1920.

1. 'The Babes in the Basket, or, Daph and her Charge', by the author of 'Timid Lucy', 'Heart and Hand' etc. etc., 1912. Published by Thomas Nelson & Sons. Charming b/w engravings throughout + one colour plate at the front. Shabby condition. 120 pages + 4 page list of other titles. Red cloth boards, very faded, especially along spine. Front cover title in black surrounded by pinkish floral repeat pattern, very pretty. A few dirty marks, and the name 'Jenny Jones' written in pencil + a few numbers / letters. Gold lettering on spine. Original inscription on front endpaper reads: "Mercy Boyle, from the Crowle Mission Hall Sunday School, Jan 1916". 2nd messy inscription in pencil reads: "Jenny Jones, 8 years old, 8 High Dean, High Road, Knighton Buchurst hill, Essex, Date 7th February" + lots of scribbles. Interior of book very clean. Spine slightly loose but covers and pages still firmly attached and secure. Worth noting that the main character in the book is referred to as "Black Daph".

2. 'Lost Muriel: The Story of a Little Girl's Influence', C. J. A. Oppermann. Published by S. W. Partridge &Co., Ltd. No date printed, possibly a 1st edition circa 1900, but I could not find out for definite. With 4 lovely b&w illustrations (see picture 5). Very good condition. 96 pages + 32 page 'Catalogue of Popular Illustrated Books' at the end. Cover is slightly faded orange / tan fabric over boards printed with green and black illustration of an angry bull bearing down on a little girl. Yellowed pages. "Susan" written in small childish letters on inside front cover then scribbled out. Spine strong and sturdy. Excellent condition, really good find!

3. 'Essays of Elia', Charles Lamb. 1920, 1st Edition, 2nd printing. Published by Cambridge University Press. Red cloth boards with black lettering to front and spine. Publishers decorative logo in black on spine. Very good condition, spine strong and sturdy. Endpapers yellowed. Secondary School stamp in purple ink inside front cover. Ink inscription reads: (unreadable name, crossed out) + "Annie Howarth, Lit VI". Student's margin notes in pencil throughout, in very nice script handwriting. A classic collection of essays on various subjects, often on the list of titles for a student of English Literature to study during the early 20th century; fairly advanced nowadays due to old fashioned language.
