Heirloom



My father's Pocket Oxford Dictionary (1924) which my mother had beautifully bound in Corfu and offered to me.

There are two inscriptions on the flyleaf, one in my father's unmistakeable neat hand, 'D.R. Holmes, Bradford Grammar School', and another in beautiful flowing script, 'David Ronald Holmes, Ashville College, Harrogate, Xmas 1924'.

Also given to me, the beautiful silver paper knife atop the dictionary.
