Scholehouse For The Needle, 1632

Postby ViscontesseD'Asbeau » Fri Aug 24, 2007 12:13 pm

Talking of secondhand bargains and jumble sale finds - how's this for spectacular? Only two copies in existence and less complete, til a 1940s schoolboy found an original copy at a jumble sale.

The gentleman who found the book and his wife have self published a facsimilie, (£14.35 inc postage if you buy it direct from them, see website details).
