Old books

15/52 for the group 2014 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

 

This week's theme was: O is for Old

 

These two old books are 107 years old and are the oldest books I possess. They were presented to my grandmother and great aunt as prizes for regular attendance at school.

 

They were passed on to me when I was a child and became my introduction to reading fantasy via the works of George MacDonald.

 

The book mark has writing in pencil on the back with a message from my grandmother wishing her sister (my great aunt Ethel) many happy returns of the day.
