Books, Books and More Books

Even though I've decided I do not need any more books, I ended up at a book sale, dragging a box of books home with me.

I really love old books, and just couldn't leave some of these behind.

Also found a great baby cup with a pretty flower design,
and a couple of spoons.

Most of the books were from the late 1800's early 1900's. I love the covers on these - the Fortune Telling book is form 1890. It's in terrible shape, unfortunately.

A couple of kids books from the 20's.

Golden Gems of Penmanship Self Instruction, 1884. This one has great pictures and writing examples.

And here is the rest of them!

  3. Terrific finds.Old books must be rescued!!I have such a soft spot for them which is why there are so many around the house.Enjoy and thanks for sharing.

  4. Very cool!

    I just love old books and I have a very hard time leaving any of them behind also.

    Especially like the penmanship book....

    Maybe because I have such poor penmanship?!?

  5. I love the books with the peacock illustrations. My guest bedroom has a peacock theme, so I'm drawn to them. I will be back to visit you often!
