I have gathered a few old books from my grandmother's collection and also from cleaning out the storage barn on my family's property last fall. I wrote about this adventure in Hidden Treasures in Junk on my blog.

Here's ten that I have posted on my site Grandma's Treasures Online - so far...

I've seen a few of these online “U.S. Official Pictures of the World War Showing American Participation: Selected From Official Files of the War Dept," written by Moore, William E. And James C. Russell. But, none with this padded cover. It's pretty cool.

I have quite a few older Golden Books for children. I'm wanting to do some research in that area and see if any are in demand.

Hi paperT, What a wonderful story and a wonderful gift! Your a gal after my own heart! I too love historical fiction and mysteries! Have you read " The Moonstone" by Wilkie Collins? that is supposed to be the very first mystery. It's a great story. I think I want to read the book you mentioned - sounds great! That,s if I can find it!

Leslie Ford (pen name) wrote mystery/detective novels. I have a nice hardcover set of six collectible books from the 1940s. If you are unfamiliar with her writing, do not expect political correctness. This period writer will take you back to another society.

I am new to this site, so please come and visit my Page.

I have a small collection of vintage books. I couldn't pick a favorite, but right now I'm pretty pleased with the 5 books I bought for $10 at a garage sale. Including a first edition of Hemmingway's For Whom the Bell Tolls - not great condition, but sound. Whoever bought it cut out the press release from the newspaper and tucked it inside the front cover, so there is discoloration, but - it is signed.

I'm not really an old book lover, but, I thought I'd share my favorite old book research site.
over 60 million books listed last time I checked.

Hi all vintage book lovers...I too have a small collection (no pics yet) I am drawn to ones I can decorate with either a lovely Harrison Fischer girl on cover or a beautiful color or childrens books ...one of my favorites is a leather book (not so pretty) titled "Leaves from an Old Log"
signed by the author Gill Robb Wilson and is copy number 475 of the original limited edition ...It's a book of poems from a Captain in the Air force during WW1...totally out of character for my "girlie" website...vintagepastelle.com.
Hope to share my books and photos soon Happy Turkey day to all!!
Pam
