With your eye for wonderful books at bargain prices, William, you won't be trudgin' your way to the poor-house. You will be bringing home instead, a wealth of wonderful reading and knowledge :)

What a wonderful, old book. I love the illustrations you find in some of the more beautiful, vintage books. Even their covers are pieces of art~~~

So true. Books like these demand to be left out, face up on a table. This particular volume was signed by one Katie D. Sherman, on Dec. 13, 1893. And the poor-house would be fine, if I could take my books along.
