Endpapers of Ungovernable: The Victorian Parent's Guide to Raising Flawless Children (2019).

Facebook is hardly good for anything anymore, but one of its finer applications is allowing a global audience of book lovers to share information and images in a handful of terrific rare book-related groups. (Of course, Fine Books is among them!) Earlier today, UK bookseller Simon Beattie, who launched the fabulous We Love Endpapers group a few years back, posted a hyperlinked list of them, which he has graciously allowed us to share here.
