Please see further pictures below. Vintage and believed to be quite rare small gilt embossed red leather bound copy of Gold Dust “A Collection of Golden Counsels for the Sanctification of Daily Life” (orig Paillettes d'Or – trans by E.L.E.B). It is a sort of book of contemplation. Not sure what edition this is but the book has a preface dated Feb 1880 by CM Yonge. There is no date of printing in this book but there is an inscription dated 1921. The book measures approximately 2.25” by 3.375” and has 74 pages. It is in good vintage condition save that one page (sides ix and x) has come loose.

I am no expert – I just collect things. I do try and do research on the bits and pieces I get though so try and give as much information as I have been able to get myself.

Most of my lots are vintage or antique or otherwise “used” and reasonable wear and tear must be taken into account. Therefore my lots are sold “as seen/found”. If I know that an article is damaged or not working in some way, I will state this in the main description.
