Antique Book - Stories for Summer Days and Winter Nights; Groomb

Long, long ago, in a distant time before there was a pandemic and the world was turned upside down, we went on an expedition to find treasures for our vintage shop.

It was on this trip that we found some very old books, filled with tales of adventure and wonder.

Just holding them makes you wonder who the previous owners were, we know that they will bring you as much joy as they gave them.

In this listing, we have an antique hardback first edition book called “Stories for Summer Days and Winter Nights”. It was published by Groombridge Sons in 1872 and has an inscription on the inside cover in fountain pen it says

Lionel Talbot Aviey
from his dear sister
Beatrice
22nd Oct 1872

We wonder if this was a birthday present from Beatrice to her dear brother Lionel, or perhaps a present for doing well with his studies?

The book has coloured illustrations and six stories:

Oscar: A Tale of Norway
Home at The Haven
The Foundling of the Wreck
The Children and The Sage
The Seeker and The Finder
The Story of Wellington

There is some wear to the book; yellowing to the pages and some are loose, but this is commiserate with the age of the book. The colour prints however are as vibrate as they were when it was printed in 1872.

The perfect book for a collector or as a Father’s Day gift or present, especially if you are a Beatrice or you know a Lionel.

This is quite a rare book and has copies in amongst other places - The National Art Library at the Victoria Albert Museum, London, Trinity College, Dublin and University of Cambridge.
