The book spine changed colour? That's so odd! Pretty crystals. :)
:)I think it was an edition made during the second world war, so the quality is low - the paper is really thin and the print is really small.. The wear from reading it must have rubbed the dye off or something. So weird they haven't been read before, I have the full set!
