This beautiful collection includes:
1. a novel from 1909 ("Life's Shop Window" by Victoria Cross)
2. a Manual of the Washington Legislature (that's Washington state) from 1907 by Henry Hurshman

The other two volumes:
3. The Dramas of Sophocles (#114 of Everyman's Library")
4. George Eliot's "Silas Marner"
appear to be even older though I cannot find a publishing date.

I once did a painting of my grandma's vacant chair with her knitting basket, cup of tea, and a very similar stack of gorgeous old books on the end table... although hers would have been poetry.

This is a lovely collection for an eclectic wordsmith or student of history, for a set designer as stage props, or to dress up your mantlepiece. A little of everything, in elegant hardbound packaging.

The smallest book (Silas Marner) measures 6,5 in x 4 in (17 cm x 10 cm) and the largest (Life's Shop Window) is 7.5" x 5" (19 cm x 13 cm).

The set will come wrapped in simple and attractive salvaged packaging, suitable for gift-giving.

Shipping will be book rate and therefore slower, unless you request first class (for an additional charge). I am happy to ship overseas. Convo me with your location and I will send a shipping quote.
