Portrait Of A Lady

I'm not sure what I like better, today's bookmarks or the book they fell out of:


A collection of five illustrations, it looks like some came from advertisements and were trimmed. Here's a scan of the back:



Found in "Old-Fashioned Fairy Tales" published by Roberts Brothers, no date listed, circa 1890.

Love the pictures that 'fell out' of the book!!!

These are beautiful bookmarks and the book itself just begs to be read at night tucked up in bed.

I am with you - it would be hard to pick but that book - oh how I would love to read that book!

Does anyone else think the 2nd bookmark looks uncannily like Princess Diana?

Ooh! I love them all! :)

Nope, no hard decision here. The book marks are good but I'm in love with the book! Is it illustrated?

There are some illustrations, but they are in black and white and fairly small. Nothing to really write home about.

Oh My what A Find! These are all wonderful including the book! Anyone who collects ephemera (me, lol) would be green!
