These books are gifts for my mother who wants to display them more than read them. I wrote very - VERY - specific instructions about the type of books to be selected: namely, vintage with attractive covers; the older, the better. Based on my description, I expected nothing with a print date after 1950... was hoping for older. The first book to arrive was printed in the 90's with a very plain cover and modern-looking dustjacket; no character whatsoever. I don't think whomever picked it out read my instructions at all.
