micromuseum 12

In 1967 Penguin books brought out a series of poetry anthologies aimed at a teenage audience. They were called Voices 1, Voices 2 and Voices 3. My mother spotted them I think and got me the series for which I’m thankful. This was about 1969 when I was fourteen or fifteen. These books were a… Continue reading micromuseum 12

When I Was 4

Here’s the next year of the Rock And Roll Years series. I better confess now that I don’t have all of these. In fact I’m missing some of the ones that I would most like to have in particular those that cover the period when British bands first made their extraordinary impact. In addition some… Continue reading When I Was 4

I collected stamps between the age of about 8 to 12, the stamps I collected I still possess and now I find them a fascinating remnant of past times –… Continue reading insect stamps

The micromuseum contains many good things. Riches and small mundane objects such as a couple of black and white prints that I instance in this post. This is an ancestry category sub-section of the ever-increasing slowly circumferencing micromuseum. The first is centred around a waterfall. A waterfall in Chile. I can’t say for certain but… Continue reading micromuseum 9

The present instance of the micromuseum is a book published in 1961 by Thomas Nelson & Sons Ltd. The publishers at this point had offices in Edinburgh, London, Melbourne, Johannesburg, Toronto, New York and there was also the Société Française D’Éditions Nelson in Paris. During the middle years of the 20th century they published many… Continue reading micromuseum 8
