Book Giveaway Redux

I had a few posts queued up to do other batches of books for the giveaway, but the fact that nobody seems to have wanted the Marie Antoinette books made me stop and take a step back.  How's about if I just post the list of books/bundles I intended to post separately?  And if anyone wants them, just drop a line and I'd be happy to send them.

- Marie Antoinette, by Hilaire Belloc
- Marie Antoinette, by Bernardine Kielty

- Having Tea, by Tricia Foley - a really excellent recipe book with amaaaazing pictures and a 1930s vibe
- The Moorchild, by Eloise McGraw - one of my favorite YA books, a must-read

- Samuel Pepys: The Unequalled Self, by Claire Tomalin
- As Her Whimsey Took Her: Critical Essays on the Work of Dorothy L. Sayers, ed. by Margaret P. Hannay

- The Annotated Sense and Sensibility, ed. by David M. Shapard, and a copy of P&P if you want it

- Knitting from the British Islands, by Alice Starmore and Anne Matheson
- McCall's Needlework Treasury (1963)
- A stack of knitting, crochet, and craft magazines from the 1940s and 1960s: Lacey's Baby Book, Womans Homecraft Needle Arts, McCall's Needlework and Crafts, etc.

    1. Excellent, you can have both and I will email you! Having Tea is a great book - I first came across it at the apartment I stayed in in New York City, and I loved it so much that my flatmate gave hers to me. So when I saw another copy at the booksale, I figured I'd pick it up and make sure it went to someone else.
