The story of this little treasure

Tiny books were a passion for collectors of all sorts in the Victorian era and beyond. Some were made for doll’s houses and even had printed pages. Many, like my little find, were made as gifts or souvenirs to hold pins. Based on card with fabric-covered ‘pages’, they were intended to resemble the tiniest books of poetry.
