Books

Yes I’ll admit I am an unabashed curbside hunter for treasures.  You know what they say, “One man’s . . .”  .  A couple weeks ago we were driving home from a day at the farm when I spied a pile of stuff at the curb after someone’s garage sale, all neatly arrayed on blankets.  What wasn’t taken that evening would have been in the garbage can by morning.  As I pulled up my husband saw this huge brown book.  (I saw the pink cashmere sweater.  Yes, really, a curbside cashmere sweater)  It, the book that is, is in pretty bad condition but it was too cool to not bring home.  It is a medical book published in 1899 with illustrations, 1999 pages and is 5 inches thick.

In contrast, the little book is a Methodist hymnal from 1865 (found at an estate sale, more later) with 719 tiny pages
