I Love Old Books: Boris Pasternak

I love old books, and was so delighted to learn about abebooks while visiting Professor Braunmuller at UCLA a couple years back.

Just recieved this $3 copy of Boris Pasternak's Selected Poems. It's in great condition and has a lovely message written on the inside.

The message reads:
With my fondest love and the happiest of memories.

This purse bears my name

These are the happinesses of my childhood

Because jewelry makes you sparkle

Ria Charisse Opal Ring because every libra needs an opal. It's not a birth stone it's a birth right.

Elizabeth Knight Wishbone Pendant so you can wear your hopes close to your heart.

Carlos Montanaro Travel Clock Necklace for the time traveler in all of us.

Finn Gatsby Ring, just because.
