A beautifully packed parcel arrived in the post today - from Australia.
I now have an original copy of the book 'Robert Dick Geologist and Botanist' by Samuel Smiles published in 1878.
I have a modern re-print of an 1879 edition.
But nothing can compare to holding this original being able to feel the bumps in the paper made by the type and that smell only old books have. Wonderful.
Thank you Faisal.
