Old books

I rescued these beautiful old books from a skip, which I noticed when I was walking past. I couldn't believe that anyone would just discard them like that. They are part of a set of bird books by T A Coward, and had obviously been collected by someone who treasured them, as they had little pieces of paper with notes on. I like the way the volumes look when stacked together, and also the gold cover and the wonderful illustrations inside.
