They are just so clever, wow. It's amazing you managed to get such good pictures, considering how fast they look!on previous comment, I have this gorgeous "little Lord Fauntleroy" book from the late 1800's, it's one of my fav's. Proberbly the earliest book with dustjacket intact is late 1920's ~ I think. (they are all in boxes at the moment while we are building our house). I loved collecting the original nancy drew books, because they had lovely dustjackets, but usually I only collect books that I actually read. My favorite is Arthur Upfield, I love his books and his original dustjacket designs.
I love Little Lord Fauntleroy! What a wonderful early edition to have. Burnett is one of my favorite authors, and her early editions are wonderful. Oh, and Arthur Upfield's dust jackets are amazing! I hear that his books are getting harder and harder to find here in the US. One of my favorite books in my collection is a Maurice Sendak first edition that I bought this year at a charity shop! Don't you love when you find treasures in unexpected places?!
You just get so excited! It became so much easier I must admit, to add to my collection when someone showed me ebay. Opened up the world as far as book collecting was concerned. I have most of A. Upfields books now, I prefer the English (Heinemann) 1st editions. I also love Patricia Wentworth book covers and stories (I know they are extremely lightweight, but I like the era)and I prefer the US covers for those.
I love the hearts on the shoes...and it is so fitting since their souls are filled with happiness by the dancing of their feet!
