A lovely little hard back book entitled “King Edward’s Realm,Story of the Making of the Empire”, was written circa 1902 by Rev C.S. Dawe (who also wrote “Queen Victoria and Her People”), and was published by The Educational Supply Association Ltd. This is a first edition and first printing.
This book has a front page insert and inscription stating: “Presented to Dorothy L Day” in June 1907 ”by the Sutton Coronation Committee”.
This lovely little book is full of historical information on King Edward VII’s reign and includes some great photographs including a great picture of King Edward himself, with a print of his signature below. Superb!
The condition is good overall (bearing in mind age) and has been used, with some staining internally, with foxing to many pages. The spin is not perfect. In and amongst the pages are a few flower/leaf pressings that were possibly put in there by Dorothy Day. A sweet addition.
If you love antique books and commemorative history, this is a nice little addition to your collection.
I do have two of these. The second is inscribed to Lily Day and is in more or less the same condition (a brighter red outer cover). Just let me know if you want more photos or just add two to your cart and get both for £11.00 and still get FREE DELIVERY!
