Printed in May 1901, this lovely old book might look a little worse for wear from the outside, but inside is in very good condition for its age. It has a wonderful inscription in the front; "Garrison School Western Heights, Dover. Presented to William Cleaver 19.12.04"

The book is illustrated with some truly beautiful black and white engravings.

If you would like more photographs or details, please get in touch.
