What a charming little book this is. A handsome gift book comprised of two journals kept by Dorothy Wordsworth who was the sister of the poet Wordsworth and his friend the poet Coleridge. The Alfoxden Journal was kept in 1798 while the Grasmere Journals spanned 1800-1803. Dorothy Wordsworth was a writer herself, so the journal is most pleasant to read. She speaks of everyday things and the beauty of the English countryside -- a very soothing book to pick up at the end of a stressful day. The charm of it also its size. Though not technically a miniature book, it still measures a diminutive 4"x 6" and has 264 pages which also includes her brother's shorter poems. It will arrive in a mylar cover to protect the dustjacket. The only fault is sunning to the spine. There is also a previous owner's name and the date written small on the front free endpaper for which I will provide a bookplate which the buyer can use,or not at, discretion.
