A FAMILY FLIGHT
AROUND HOME
By Rev. E. E. Halle and Miss Susan Hale
FULLY ILLUSTRATED
Boston:  D. Lothrop and Company
Franklin and Hawley Street
1885 FIRST EDITION
Copyright by Lothrop and Company 1885

Just check out this antique book.  I have been a bookseller for over 20 years and I will be able to honestly say that this is by far one of the beautiful publications ever.  The covers are just gorgeous with full color illustrations that wrap around from back to front, including the spine.  It portrays a woman of the day enjoying a good book with floral decorations, a castle in background, and on the back cover it shows a woman at a Juliette balcony with the Egyptian pyramids.  “A Circle of relatives Flight Around Home” is a true Victorian, it has lovely illustrations all the way through whilst telling all about American history.  It includes such topics as: Boston and the Pilgrims, About Indians, George Washington and the Revolt, General Putnam and his famous ride, The Liberty Bell and so a lot more.  These don’t seem to be boring history lessons, quite they’re written in story book form with characters and dialog.  There are lots of chapters of home life and quiet living to add a bit of personality to the historical facts.  In all probability written for a young lady of the day, this book is just so interesting and enjoyable.  And please know that whilst there is also others of the same title, this one is really unique in its covers, in reality the only one I could find after a very careful search.  It is relatively conceivable that this one is the only survivor of a very limited publication and offered here for the first actual time.  It would make a wonderful addition for the collector of fine and rare Victorian books and would look improbable displayed on a mantel or antique coffee table.  Certainly a very impressive book with a view to evoke amazing compliments.
