A few nice old books





Sorry but this book is sold
This lovely little French book is just perfect if you want to become a lady artist...full of instructions on oil painting, still life, making picture frames. With many sweet black and white illustrations. To read more about it, click here.

This pretty pink-silk covered book is about the Ile-de-France and the wonderful Chateaux, parks, churches and countryside in the area - you can see my listing on ebay here. Don't you just love the picture of Fragonard's 'The Swing' on the front?







This is a rare, numbered & signed 1st edition vellum covered book, in English, containing the sermons and teachings of Saint Bernadino of Siena. Not at all stuffy, his amusing stories date from 14th century Renaissance Italy and have been beautifully illustrated by the man who designed the bank notes for the Bank of England!
