I’m totally nuts for old books, everything about them
Katie: I wish I had room for more old books, because I like them a lot ! 🙂
The ldest one I have–found discarded at the flea market !– is a small book of poetry from Scotland published in 1839 !! It ‘s in poor condition, but still, a happy find
A very good find indeed — sharp eyes at the flea market can pay off ! 😀
OOH! These make me all tingly and excited! I LOVE old books! I love to smell them, run my fingers over the covers, touch each page, read them, display them, etc! 🙂
I collect old Readers…the books parents and teachers used to teach children to read….and other old children’s books.
I bought my first old book when I was 12 yrs old ! in a real bookshop,with the ladders and dust, etc.. .50c for a leather-covered edition of Tennyson poems, worn down, but I didn’t care.. It had the lovely illustration pages (such as the Lady of Shalott) covered with tissue and everything !
I’m totally nuts for old childrens’ books too ! I have some
