Why We Love This

The Harvard Classics. Nine volumes. New York: Collier Son, 1937. Registered Edition. Hardcovers. 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 Dr. Eliot to create such a collection, the first collection of which was published in 1909.

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.
