The Poet at the Breakfast Table

Book Share Fridays:
"The Poet at the Breakfast Table"
by Oliver Wendell Holmes

Better late to share, than never!


  1. I recently found "the autocrat" at a book sale. Holmes is such a great writer! "Men are idolaters, and want something to look at and kiss and hug, or throw themselves down before; they always did, they always will; and if you don't make it of wood, you must make it of words ..." Is that your copy? It looks like it is in very good condition!

  2. Hi Karen,
    It is a book that I came across at an antique store. I sold it in my shop awhile back. It was a really great copy though. I need to read Holmes!
