via Instagram @kimiberr. Complete Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde, 2nd-hand book inscription:

It also came with this.

“Irwin,

May you lead a fairy-tale life when you go to the land of fairy tales.

Most poets and writers are fascinated with these stories, and I hope that you’d like this. Bon voyage! Belated H-bday too. Some (N)”

This is why I love buying old books. It’s like I’m peering into some one else’s life and not just through the stories I read but through the little inscriptions, earmarks, notes, and dedications of past owners and givers like these. Makes the world smaller but a bit more vast all at the same time.
