- Jan 5, 2000First, Bob Bradbury is issuing a catalogue of miniature books for sale. If
youre not already on his mailing list you should order one. He is a member
of this list. but he is too modest to mention this im sure.
Second, i just received as a gift a wonderful miniature french-english
dictionary. It was sent to me by an English woman who makes miniature dolls
for my doll houses, Jill Bennett. This is what she wrote in her note: "Dear
Neale. Greetings. I should have sent this to you long ago, but it comes with
my good wishes to you and Margaret for the year 2000. It was my father's
aide-memoir. He lost his life in Tunisia in 1943. It does seem to have been
well used. It has no cover but you said, i remember, that you give your
little books new ones. Please give my love to all in your pub!" (note: the
reference to my pub is to a miniature pub, a model of the Falkland Arms, In
Great Tew, Oxfordshire, England. Jill made all the dolls which are in the
pub, including a very glamorous serving wench which Jill based on a Drambuie
Knowing wonderful people like Jill is what makes life worth while.
