Spine of Week: Stuff by Beery

Not only is it called Stuff, it's by Beery.

Walking past a secondhand bookshop today, I noticed this interesting title on their £1 shelf. It’s written for “every person interested in the romantic stoy of the stuff used in daily life, be he eight or eighty.” I won’t go into gender politics as I’m sure Pauline G Beery is just using the mascaline pronoun to keep her dedication short and well-crafted.

The first illustration of the book is”Prince Rahotep and Princess Nefert could well be smug!”. How could I not buy this book?
