Nice surprises

(Before It's News)

One of the pleasant side-effects of my ongoing purging efforts in the house is finding books we own but had forgotten about. Such is the case with this thin anonymous black album.

Turns out to be a book called “Young Bess,” about Queen Elizabeth I’s younger years, no doubt purchased at some long-ago library sale.

It was printed in 1945 and, as the inside page gravely informs me, it was printed “in full compliance with the government’s regulations for conserving paper and other essential materials.”

Regardless, it’s turning into a fascinating read. I’ve always been enamored of English Medieval and Renaissance history anyway, so this rainy day finds me holed up with a good book, a nice surprise.
