  • Vintage from the 19th century
  • Materials: leather bound book

This wonderful rare antique poetry book is dated 1820. It has a worn leather cover that has lots of character. This would make a very unique gift for a poetry lover or to just to put on display.

The book is very worn, which adds to its character. There is an inscription inside the cover and the first cover page. Some of the pages have some tearing, aging, and water stains, but the book is intact and could still be read.

The book measures 6 3/4” x 4 1/4” x 1 1/4” thick.

Just what I was looking for. During our lock down I have been redecorating my sun room. I used lots of nature related items and several plants. In my garden I trimmed a beach grass plant. I placed the tied bunch in a basket and placed your buy in there as well to give it the vintage feel I was looking for.

Wonderful experience! I emailed a few questions and all were answered immediately. She was so helpful and kind. The books were as described. They have been very loved over their many years and will continue to be. They came carefully wrapped and arrived safely and quickly. HighwayHitchinPost is great!
