 Riviere of Bath binding. A Guide to Watering Places, on the Coast, between The Exe and the Dart (BK21)

An exceptional volume being offered in the 6th March 2019 Antiquarian Book Auction (BK21)  takes us back to the elegance of the Regency period, when Teignmouth, Dawlish and Torquay were the fashionable places to go to and be seen.

What delight for the child who was originally the lucky owner of the wonderful moveable book which is included in Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood's Antiquarian Book Auction on the 6th March 2019 (BK21).

Princess Rose-Petal and Her Adventures (BK21)

Titled 'Princess Rose-Petal and Her Adventures, A Moveable Toybook, by Lothar Meggendorfer, published circa 1890's.

A child's delight (BK21)

Although with some signs of use, it remarkably still has all the intricate moveable parts intact and working. Also it still has the remains of the original torn dust wrapper present. The pre-sale estimate is £500 - £1000
