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.

Feedback (including Detailed Seller Rating DSR)

I always try to give fair and positive feedback and expect buyers or sellers to do the same.

When you purchase an item from me, please consider in addition to the standard Feedback section, what you might give me in the DSR section. Please bear in mind that, although a 4 star rating may seem like a great score, e.g. for Shipping (i.e. quickly), eBay, however, considers this a sub-par mark. They require sellers to maintain a 4.8 average rating or above, or be penalized with higher fees & lower search rankings etc.

Postage and packing is also a thorny issue. I try to ensure that my packages are well packed to aid safe delivery and this costs money (not to mention the time taken to package odd shaped packages!). I therefore tack on an additional amount above the cost of postage. Very often this does not meet the cost of materials used in packaging. In addition, if I feel I have overcharged you or if a saving has been made at the time of actual postage (e.g. if the postage rate is lower than I estimated), I will very often refund part of the postage costs. This is not so much a moral policy as a "do as you would be done by" policy - something that I have tried to adhere to all my life.

If you were pleased with this transaction, please respond with all 5 stars! If you are not pleased, then please let me know via e-mail, and I'll try to improve my future service.
