A FINELY GILDED
LEATHER DOLL SIZE AIDE MEMOIRE
I am so pleased to
be able to offer you this lovely Doll size Aide
Memoire. It is so finely made and this is apparent from
the front and inside. The covers are maroon
leather and finely tooled - even the spine has intricate
gilding. The Aide Memoire fastens securely with a
clasp, and when this is sprung open it reveals numerous
blank pages and the name M.R.Todd is pencilled in on one
page. The edges of all these pages are thickly
gilded. The two things I particularly like about
this Aide Memoire is the fact it retains it`s original
pencil, made from bone - and it still writes finely!
Amazing that this has not been lost over the many years
since it was made. The second thing I love, and
perhaps my favourite part, is the pretty original papers
in the front and rear - and the front contains a pocket
to contain little notes.
