I can offer these two 1920s pocket books which are around a century.

I've probably got a few more coming up to their century, but nothing from the 1800s like RC.
That horse book is in very good nick MJ. Lovely plate too.
I've noticed that some books from the first half of the 20th Century don't appear to have publishing dates on them.
I have my Mum's copy of "Crowning the King" that she got when she was around seven years old. She was very fond of it but it had been pretty badly water damaged at some stage. I had it repaired and rebound for her. They did a lovely job of it but couldn't get the stains off the back pages where mold had grown.
You can see some of the water damage in the last photo. The Queen Mother was a handsome woman wasn't she?
