      July Supporter Giveaway   07/01/2019

      It's Christmas in July! The winner of the July Supporter giveaway will receive this beautiful Barnes & Noble edition of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, as well as a special Charles Dickens tea by  theliteraryteacompany.co.uk .   I've been keeping this book a secret for so long (I couldn't wait until Christmas!) It's actually from a really lovely independent bookshop in Hay-on-Wye, the town of books. I'm so glad I finally get to show you! The picture doesn't even do it justice. A nice feature that you can't see in this image - the page edges are gold and (an extra surprise for the winner) the back is just as beautiful as the front! We also now have twice as much tea as previous giveaways!  (Thank you Literary Tea Company!)   As always, supporters are automatically entered into the giveaway and a winner will be chosen at random at the end of the month. If you want to enter this giveaway but you aren't a supporter, you can join in here https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .   Good luck

Does anyone have any information on these books?

I went into a charity shop the other day, and I found 4 very nice leather backed books by Harriet Martinaeu called The History of the Peace, I bought them and took them home. The leather backs have a very nice embossed pattern on them. I started reading them this morning and noticed these 4 volumes were published in 1877 and I cannot for the life of me find the same books anywhere, none of my searches have yielded the same boiled with the embossed leather backs. The books say “Bohn’s Standard Library” on the spine but say they were published by “Bell and sons” they are in really good condition for books from 1877 if anyone has any information on these books i.e if they have any value or are of any rarity, let me know!
