Adventures in Packing: The Most Prized Book in My Collection

After packing up my regular hardcovers and paperbacks it became time to delve into my antique book collection.  While I love many of these musty novels my favorite vintage book is Talks to Girls by E. A. H. (Copyright 1891).

Not only is the cover pretty, the inscription says:

This little book is dedicated to LULU, 
who once said that she wished I "would 
write a book on purpose for girls and
for nobody else," by her friend E. A. H.

STILL, the biggest reason why I love this book: it has been passed down to the first-born girl in my mother's family since my great-grandma Katie!

Stay tuned for more "Adventures in Packing" - get ready to nerd-out tomorrow at the illustrations from my vintage book collection!
