I love miniature books, I have several (they are not valuable except to me), they are mostly about cats, of course, and some are about witches and I have one tiny spell book and caldron, mortar and pedestal. I'm not a witch but have always been interested in them and I do love traditional Halloween so I have a collection of witches, black cats, etc. I also have a collection of tiny Polliwogs. I love miniature things.
What fun! I love tiny things too. I have a book about the making of Queen Mary's Dollhouse and the most fascinating part of it is the section dedicated to the library of miniature volumes written--and even illustrated--by some of the eminents of the day.
I'll never get to see this in person, but I love the photos you posted. If only someone would do a good photographic essay volume on this place--but not in miniature !

I was never into "girly things" when I was young but the exception was the Colleen Moore dollhouse at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. I was totally fascinated by all the tiny furnishings , I went to see this several times even as an adult.
I own a copy of the bible on microfilm. I was a microfilm supervisor for a large company for 4 years and I got this gem from a vendor. I also have a portable handheld microfilm reader in order to view the contents.
