    I have a miniature leather bound book of Tennyson's poems. It was published by David Bryce & Son Glasgow.
    The book is 5cm high and 3cm wide. I am hoping someone can please help me date the book and also provide an idea of value.
    Thanks so much.

    No unfortunately. I can't find a date on any of the pages.

    It is not uncommon for British books of this period (19th to early 20th century) to not include any publication date. Very annoying.

    That does look the same and the date looks about right. There is an inscription in the copy I have to my Grandmother when she was in her teens.
    Thanks so much.
