Couple of nice old books …

A recent couple of books to my growing collection of ‘nice old stuff’, ‘Ring of Bright Water’ and ’12 Days on the Norwegian Coastal Steamer’ with some gorgeous illustrations and unusual additions hiding at the back, a long skinny map of Norway, a newspaper cutting from the Manchester Guardian dated Thursday July 16 1970 about shopping in Reykjavik and the novelty of all the houses being centrally heated, and a certificate of Mrs Ethel E. Jonas of having crossed the Arctic Circle on June 2 1955, which has a blank page at the back for handy notes and autographs (to collect while travelling across the Arctic Ocean?!). The book seems to have been owned by 2 people, who perhaps both took the same journey. Maybe it should be my future journey, maybe I should add my name to the list!
