This is a nice little book, in great condition. It seems to be a sort of early-edition softcover, as the binding is like a hardcover, but the front and back covers bend a small amount, called a "leatherette."

The book is undated but it is thought to be published circa 1900-1910.

Please note that this listing is for "The Way of All Flesh" only, and does not include any other books pictured.

Holy Moly! This is absolutely the cutest book I have ever seen. The McLoughlan Brothers used to be my favorite Victorian illustrators, but this L. Leslie Brooke is my new favorite illustrator. The pictures are big and colorful and beautiful and adorable. And the expressions of the animals (not to mention the ways they walk) are just priceless. I feel like this very old book was an excellent price. The two were shipped very carefully and quickly. I highly recommend this shop. Thank you so much Sassteas!!! ~~Laura
