Funny, I was just thinking about Lisbon and its gorgeous bookshops yesterday... Then today I happen upon a flat parcel wrapped in printed brown paper on my desk and inside are 5 gorgeous hand painted pages from old books that I bought at the Livraria Campos Trindade antique bookshop in Lisbon back in January. This one is from a book on the art of geographical maps with tips on watercolour shading & map borders. What a sweet surprise.

One of my all-time favorite supernatural illustrations. This is "Four in One Weird and Occult Shorts" and is technically NOT an original publication. In fact, the publisher Gerald G. Swan assembled unsold remainder stock, did NOT strip off the original covers (you read me right; they are all inside) and then stapled the 4 booklets together, and commissioned an original cover to be slapped onto the newly assembled product. And who doesn't love gruesome vampire illustrations? Now, do you want the bad news? Lol, yup, if you are a maniac completist, Swan was a cruel s.o.b. This title has at least 3 known editions with entirely DIFFERENT contents bound inside! But if you only collect for cover art and don't read, who cares, right? Alas, I read...and so I own 2 of the 3 known variants. Pity me? And so, because there ARE three different issues, I won't quote any authors. Why bother? And who is actually reading this, anyway?

267/365. My antique 1882 copy of Physiology, Hygiene and Narcotics came to me in a random box of books at an estate auction. It is very weird, crumbling and beautifully illustrated. Perhaps I will be brave enough to try and photograph some of the contents later without it crumbling further. πŸ“–
