Old is New
A few days ago I went to take 5 books to the used books store. (Friends of the Library). And as usual I came home with books. At least I brought more than I came home with that counts for something, doesn’t it? lol
Anyway.. this first book “the Return of Sherlock Holmes” I saw and when I flipped through it I saw that the printed it “as it appeared” in the Strand Magazine that Conan Doyle wrote for! Check out the pictures…
Note the double columns!
… and the fantastic art work on nearly every page! All by the original artist Sidney Paget!
Is that neat or what?!! I had to have it! The Chances of my reading this copy isn’t great though because of the small print.. but I still had to have it! Cost: 3.oo.
And then I found a book I look for every time I go there… and this time I found it!
Chariots of the Gods by Erich Von Daniken. I still have my old OLD paperback which I can’t read anymore from small print and brown paper!
I was thrilled to find this hardback copy in very good condition! The cover is beginning to brown on the edges but the inside is still very good!
Sometimes something very cheap can make me quite happy! Cost: 1.oo !!!
I’m also proud that I only brought home 2 books! lol
So, has anyone else found any special (hard to find) books lately????
