Vintage treasure

I found this beautiful little book in the local 'antique shoppe'.
It's a wonderfully tactile, leather bound, gilt-edged book.
The leather is so so soft and feels just lovely in your hand.
Mrs Browning's Birthday Book is a diary for birthdays which
includes snippets of poems by
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

February 21
There is one hill I nearer,
In my vision of the rest;
And a little wood seems clearer,
As I climbeth from the west,
Sideway from the tree-locked valley, to the valley upland crest
( The Lost Bower)
