This is an old book I found at a junk store. If you will notice on the photo that says "Dreams" There is a place and date that reads...Matjesfontein, Cape Colony, South Africa, November, 1890.
I just liked how it looked old! If anyone has any information they can share with me about this book I would appreciate it. Thank you

    The internet is your best help. Here is what I found:
    Olive Schreiner
    Matjesfontein, Cape Colony, South Africa 1890 102 pages

    This book by Schreiner, South African author and feminist, who is best remembered for her novel the Story of an African Farm, contains eleven short stories based on Schreiner's dreams and life on a farm in South Africa.

    Retail $35.00 give or take

    Here is a list from Abe books. Pay close attention to the dates to find your book. Remember just because the price is listed, it doesn't mean it will go for this much. This is a listed price, not how much it sold for. I find more time than not the price is inflated on these sites.
