Why We Love This

Volume 31 to 24 of the Harvard Classics, The Five-Foot Shelf of Books. In 1909 the President of Harvard University, Dr. Eliot, made claims that one could get a quality education by reading from three-feet-shelf of classics for 15 minutes a day, later changing it to five feet. Collier Son challenged him to create such a collection and the 1st collection was published in 1909. This fabulous collection is part of the Gem Stone Collection and was printed in 1956 to celebrate the 50th printing.

About DecadesofVintage

I love old books. I like to read them, to look at them, to decorate with them, and to use them for the perfect present (the ultimate form of recycling). I have been arranging my book shelves by color for quite a while and after helping friends and clients do the same, and seeing the growing trend, I decided to sell decorative book collections, thus DecadesofVintage. For me, decorating with books is like painting a picture or telling a story.
