The Secret Lives of Books 

Here are some of the inscriptions found in the flyleaves of my secondhand books 
 I am fascinated by the glimpses these inscriptions give into relationships between family, friends and colleagues 
The Young Fur Traders by R.M. Ballantyne, 1910
 Two Little Friends, Illustrated Stories, 1890
The Fairyland of Living Things by Richard Kearton, 1922
Moonshine by Lord Brabourne, 1890
Green Willow by Grace James, 1912

 I recently discovered an article by someone equally fascinated by inscriptions in secondhand books
 He has even compiled a blog/book of the most intriguing
