What a pretty booklet this is, a true labor of love. There's no date, but it's clearly vintage with its yapped edges and tipped-in art. There is no attempt here to offer a history of Bermuda. Rather, it shows glimpses of the reasons people are bewitched by the island's beauty. There's 12 lovely full page art works with commentary and an essay at the front. Areas pictured include: Cumberland Street, a Bermuda garden, Par-La-Ville Gardens, Long Bay Road, an ancient buttery, morning lights, palmetto vale, an Easter lily field, the Old Lane House, Paget Shore, the end of the harbor, oleanders, St. George's Pembroke Parish, Hamilton, Somerset and near the Devil's Hole. Booklet measures 6"x9" and is pristine inside with no names or writing. All faults are exterior including a few edge tears and a small loss of paper to spine ends, all of which have been repaired by me with non-browning archival tape.
