The Savoy Cocktail Book. This is a facsimile edition. I would be in heaven if it were a first edition copy. First Editions of this book can cost as much as £2000... 😱 I found this one in a charity shop about 3 years ago for £1. The first edition was first published in 1930 and has never been out of print. It was compiled by Harry Craddock and the Art Deco design of the book was done by Gilbert Rumbold. #bargain #thesavoycocktailbook #facsimileedition #harrycraddock #gilbertrumbold #bookstagram #instabooks #instabookstagram #igreads #igbooks #booklover #bibliophile #bookworm #booknerd #bookaddict #bookcollector #avidreader #booksbooksbooks #bookseverywhere #readersofinstagram #somanybookssolittletime #bookjunkie #ilovebooks #homelibrary #reading #bookgeek #cantgetenoughofbooks #voraciousreader #bookaremydrug #📖📚📖📚

Here are my new IKEA Billy Bookshelves in our study. We have been a little unorthodox in where we’ve put them... they are built to be floor standing but we’ve attached them to the walls and ceiling. They needed slightly altered to make them stronger for the task but they look amazing. So happy. This is not the final way my books will be organised. I plan to tweak and rearrange them over the coming days. I’ve never had proper wall shelves before. My husband, @duncansillars, is an absolute star and I don’t deserve him. This was all his idea. #ikea #billybookshelves #handyhubby #bookstagram #instabooks #instabookstagram #igreads #igbooks #booklover #bibliophile #bookworm #booknerd #bookaddict #bookcollector #avidreader #booksbooksbooks #bookseverywhere #lostinbooks #readersofinstagram #somanybookssolittletime #bookjunkie #ilovebooks #homelibrary #reading #bookgeek #cantgetenoughofbooks #thatbooksmell #voraciousreader #bookaremydrug #📖📚📖📚

Over the last couple of days hubby and I have been putting up IKEA Billy Bookshelves. So a little rearranging of pictures has been required. The job will be finished completely tomorrow but we are rewarding ourselves with a glass of Piper-Heidsieck after a very long day of shelf building and attaching said shelves to a wall... I saw the reflection of our glasses in an Edwardian mirror and thought it was arty. 🤷🏻‍♂️ (pictures of bookshelves will follow at some point tomorrow.) #beenbusytoday #piperheidsieck #champagne #rewardtoourselves #pictures #artwork #arty #diy #edwardianmirror

Hubby, @duncansillars, and I have spent a massive proportion of today putting up some IKEA Billy Bookshelves in the lounge. We’ve had to... alter them slightly to make them fit. I’m so happy with the result. Tomorrow we have five more going on the wall in the study. Plenty space for all my many many books. #billybookcase #billybookshelves #ikea #bookstagram #instabooks #instabookstagram #igreads #igbooks #booklover #bibliophile #bookworm #booknerd #bookaddict #bookcollector #avidreader #booksbooksbooks #bookseverywhere #lostinbooks #readersofinstagram #somanybookssolittletime #bookjunkie #ilovebooks #homelibrary #reading #bookgeek #cantgetenoughofbooks #thatbooksmell #voraciousreader #bookaremydrug #📖📚📖📚

I learnt something new about Glasgow I had never known before today... it has its own underground railway. Not quite so creepy as the London Underground and definitely not so deep beneath the city. Very windy and extremely noisy tunnels though. #glasgowsubway #glasgowtube #glasgowunderground #undergroundrailway #glasgow

A vision of heavenliness. Voltaire & Rousseau, Otago Lane, Glasgow. Piles and Piles and PILES of books. The shop has two rooms... The first one is essentially an entrance vestibule (didn’t get a picture 😔) and every book in this room is only £1. The second room is the main shop floor. This is split into two walkways... 😜 That you can just about navigate. Books in this room start from about £1.50 upwards. (I haven’t seen many of the books priced at any more than £10) This shop is a must do for any book lover who finds themselves in Glasgow. #voltaireandrousseau #otagolane #secondhandbookshop #myspiritualhome #heaven #bookstagram #instabooks #instabookstagram #booklover #bibliophile #bookworm #booknerd #bookaddict #bookcollector #avidreader #booksbooksbooks #bookseverywhere #igreads #igbooks #booktography #booksaremydrug #ilovebooks #voraciousreader #lostinbooks #readersofinstagram #bookporn #somanybookssolittletime #atleastitsnotdrugs #bookjunkie #📖📚📖📚

*** Book Mail *** Not long home from our bookish trip to Glasgow today. This was waiting on the mat... Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops by Jen Campbell. I recently read The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night and totally loved it so I bought this and its sequel. Can’t to get to this... eventually. @jenvcampbell 😍 #weirdthingscustomerssayinbookshops #jencampbell #bookstagram #instabooks #instabookstagram #booklover #bibliophile #bookworm #booknerd #bookaddict #bookcollector #avidreader #booksbooksbooks #bookseverywhere #igreads #igbooks #booktography #booksaremydrug #ilovebooks #voraciousreader #lostinbooks #readersofinstagram #bookporn #somanybookssolittletime #atleastitsnotdrugs #bookjunkie #📖📚📖📚

Another of my finds from today’s trip to Glasgow bookshop Voltaire & Rousseau. The Wonderland of Nature - Book Three by Harper Cory. This edition so beautiful. It’s a clothbound paperback and it dates from 1935. There is a stamp on the Title Page that states... Specimen With The Publishers’ Compliments. This leads me to believe this was probably a free/arc copy that would have been sent out prior to final publication to newspapers/journalists for review. Much like publishers nowadays will do for an “Honest Review” I’m really happy to have found this and I am going to look into exactly the meaning but I’m fairly certain I’ve hit the nail on the head with my guess. #thewonderlandofnature #harpercory #voltaireandrousseau #1930s #bookstagram #instabooks #instabookstagram #booklover #bibliophile #bookworm #booknerd #bookaddict #bookcollector #avidreader #booksbooksbooks #bookseverywhere #igreads #igbooks #booktography #booksaremydrug #ilovebooks #voraciousreader #lostinbooks #readersofinstagram #bookporn #somanybookssolittletime #atleastitsnotdrugs #bookjunkie #📖📚📖📚 *** UPDATE *** When we got home I went straight onto AbeBooks and found books 1 and 2. 😍❤️
