Shelfie of the month

This is a chunk of the research library - mostly military here, I think, though I can see Youngson's The Making of Classical Edinburgh (a wonderful book) peeping out on the top left. The second shelf down is the cat shelf, but the lowest one has a bit of a mixture - postcards of the Lewis chessmen, a yoyo, a very old pocket mirror, a pompom maker, an Indian dye stamp or two and a handful of Wensleydale curls (wool from Wensleydale sheep, which look like Shirley Temple). The jar on the top shelf is full of dried peas - not absolutely sure why.
