These tiny books, some no more than 1cm wide, include the New Testament, Bijou’s Illustrations of Christ’s Life, Poems Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect by Robert Burns, and Hampton’s ABC Railway Guide. They were possibly made for a Victorian dolls house, along with a miniature working magnifying glass to help read them.
