Thread Name: Lyr Add: Dear Old Skibbereen
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Dear Old Skibbereen
I just obtained a copy of "The Wearing of the Green Song-Book" the cover seems to have been replaced hand sewn paper with thread. The front says (in cursive with pencil) "Malcolm J Makinnon, Please keep this book clean. - Mama" and dated April 5th, 1897. The cover is falling apart and on the inside of the back there is another date of 1897. I bought it at an estate sale on Martha's Vineyard. I think it deserves to be cherished. Would anyone in this thread be interested in owning it? if so email me at subject title Wearing of the green with any questions
