CIRCA 1920s. Antique collectors recognize Little Leather Library mini books' tiny green “leather” covers and embossed titles. Featured in 2 Etsy Treasuries "Paper Me Crazy!" by amyschwan and "Something Old For You" by Thenubandquill.

CLASSIC REDCROFT EDITIONS. These miniature editions were among the first pocket books, small enough to literally fit into a pocket. Petite but precious, their noble time-worn pages attest to their age.

SOUGHT AFTER VOLUMES. And each Little Leather Library antique book has its own personality. As appearances go, a commonality of conditions exists. There's the expected darkening on page edges and some browning on first and last pages. Two books have a small tear on first pages, and 2 have back page water stain discoloration.

COVERS HAVE NO HOLES OR TEARS, except Inferno Vol. II which has a very small tear at top right. There is fraying on the cover corners from prior use, after having been bumped, rubbed, stuffed into pockets and read some 90 years ago. The color changes are consistent with their age, and they have other minor age related symptoms which do not interfere with reading the text.

THEY HAVE GOOD TIGHT SPINES, bindings are intact, and there are no musty odors - plus this is a smoke free, pet free house. As for inside pages, all have clean, readable interior pages in good antique condition. It's impossible to detail every single nuance of these 7 vintage volumes but I have tried my very best to be helpful and describe the prevalent conditions of this collection. (Apple and Galileo thermometer not included.)

GIFT, SELF-GIFT, OR COLLECTORS FIND. If you have questions on a specific title, just ask. Titles are:

- - The Holy Grail by Alfred Lord Tennyson
- - Fifty Best Poems of America, Longfellow, Emerson, etc.
- - The Trial of Socrates by Plato
- - Speeches and Addresses by Abraham Lincoln
- - The Murders in the Rue Morgue by Edgar Allan Poe
- - Inferno Vol. I by Dante
- - Inferno Vol. II by Dante

PLEASE READ BEFORE BUYING: Favorite Collectibles are pre-owned. They're NOT newly minted, and not always in 100% perfect, pristine condition. Vintage and antique items had prior lives, most have been in storage for years. All are sold exactly as I bought them myself, in “AS FOUND" condition. I cannot accept returns. Due to their unique nature, rarity, and age, all vintage and antique items are sold “AS IS”, FINAL SALE.

While each piece speaks clearly of its value and genuineness, in both text and photos I try to disclose its condition to the best of my ability. It's impossible to describe every flaw and imperfection, though I try to provide the most accurate description I can and still be practical. I may over-describe, but you need to know what you're getting. I am an avid collector, not an expert on many of these vintage items, and circa dates refer to approximate time periods based on comparable referencing that I am able to find.

My feedback reflects the respect and gratitude I have for my Etsy customers and the care I take to describe and ship the items I sell. I count on my feedback history to prove that I try my best to ensure your satisfaction. My Shop Profile, Shop Policies, and my Feedback history help tell you why discriminating collectors can buy with total confidence!
