Tom Brown's School Days (Hardy Amies' copy)
Old copy of this British children's classic, inscribed to then 8-year-old fashion designer Hardy Amies 'with love from all at Centinal [?], Christmas 1917'. With his large attractive bookplate affixed twice, to inside cover, and second page, and what I assume is his childish sketch of a lady's hat on last page. Binding loose and worn. Pages a bit browned.
W. & R. Chambers, 1917
hardcover, good condition
