Almost forgot one of my coolest finds–a 5-volume illustrated set of Jane Austen’s works, published in 1924.
Persuasion, The Watsons (never heard of that one; it looks more like a short story or novella), Emma, Mansfield Park, Pride and Prejudice, and, of course, Sense and Sensiblility (which is one of the very, very few “chick” flicks I’ll watch willingly. The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill and Came Down a Mountain is another, but that has nothing to do with this post).
The books have obviously seen better days, but there’s just something about an old book. Especially one with illustrations.
And I got them for somewhere around $1 apiece
