I bought a first edition Dictionary dated pre-civil war (1857?) written by Noah Webster's brother. It had so many mistakes it was taken off the market. Unfortunately the owner didn't know what he had and it poured rain the night before his Yard Sale and the book got soaked. He gave me the book for free. I sold it "as is" for around $280. In old dictionaries I look up the word "Uranium" and am amused to read: "a worthless yellow rock"...

I have a first edition Robert W. Service poem book, hard-bound pocket size, dated 1907. My favorite poem, The Cremation of Sam McGee, is in the book. I bought it for a whole nickel!

I have an old book of record of barter trade that relates to A.k.Jones who resided in Tennessee during the civil war. Mr. jones was a black man whose decendents were mix race. They were members of the confederate Army.
search the internet for "A.K.Jones in Tennessee".

I love old books and have since I was a kid. I inherited my Grandmothers "Elsie" books when I was about 7 years old and I guess I caught the bug then. I also sell old and out of print books on abe. Great new group! Vicki H.
