A Library to Envy


Oh.My.What a wonderful library! Antiquarian books are my passion and this looks like a very nice collection. I wish I could see the head on the portrait. This room is not staged and the bookshelves were designed specifically for the volumes....large to small (in three sections) from the floor up. I would love to see the rest of the room. Are you fond of fine bindings too?

I dream of having a library like this. One day...

A comfy chair by the window and it would be the perfect place for a summer afternoon. With your favorite book, of course!

Oh my, yes! I'll take the library and the portrait!
My antiquarian books are cookbooks and I have a Gene Stratton Porter collection too.

Oh, I love fine bindings!! This library looks like a wonderful excuse to stay inside and out of the sun.
