Collecting Vintage Books


Every time I pass a Book Sale I have to Stop. I think Books not only supply us with a wealth of information. Every Book can stand the test of time. The illustrations, print, copyright is amazing to the eye.Just think, in the 1800's I wonder what book was on the best seller list? So, next time you see signs for a Book Sale. STOP! Gaze for awhile. You never know what you will find at the very bottom of the pile.

I was never allowed to read the popular American children's books of my day because, as my Mother said, the children spoke bad English without the Author's knowing it.
