Highways in Bookland

£9.99

Product description

Highways in Bookland is the ultimate gift for lovers of vintage literature! R. J. Wardell talks readers through 'The Aim of Reading' and details 'Dangers to be Avoided', in which he tells us that 'worst of all tendencies in modern reading' is the 'narcotizing influence of reading for mere pastime.'

Published by Hazell, Watson, and Viney, LD.
The book doesn't have a date, but the estimated publishing date is 1906.

Small hardback book with no dust jacket.
Good condition for its age. Some brown age spots, mostly on the outer pages. The spine is very faded, especially compared to the front and back covers. There is sticker residue on the back cover.

An eclectic and quirky period-piece. A real find!
