During some purchases at Ebay recently, I ended up with a duplicate of one book so I've posted it here.   No special deal on this, but I thought it was a book worth highlighting.

It is the Hallmark Gift Book edition of "The Prince and the Pauper".   It is bound in a beautiful purple embossed velveteen, (feels almost like suede to me, but they say it's velveteen)    Ribbon bookmark, gold embossed title & border accents.  Small picture on the center of the cover, outlined w/ more gold accents.  It really is a beautiful book for anyone who likes to collect "nice" books, or it would make a lovely gift for someone.   This is the full story - 276 pages - not a condensed or abridged "childrens version".    It is in mint condition.

I don't have a photo but if you search at Ebay, several sellers have a copy of "Secret Garden" right now, and you can see what these books look like by checking those listings.  (They issued about a dozen different titles in the same type of bindings...) 

I just hated for it to be lingering on my shelf amongst all the "plain" books - so I thought I'd mention it here!!   I'd love to see it find a home with someone who likes fine books!

Thanks, Jody - I think you will really love it!   I got one of these Hallmark books here on PBS originally, and I loved it so much that I went out looking for the other titles at Ebay, various booksellers, etc.   They're out of print, so it's tough to find all of the titles that Hallmark put out in this particular collection.   I've got five of them now & they are such lovely books.

Thanks Nickie- Let me know some of the other titles so that I might  know which books Hallmark published in this special edition.- I might want to collect them too! You did mention Secret Garden.

Blessings and thanks again,

Jody
