A fun time lapse video of me sewing up on 6 cords an antiquarian book. If only I was this fast....

Not the wall-to-wall Beauty and the Beast library I dreamt about when I was a little girl *ahem* but it'll have to do. I have 1,200 old books arriving this morning.

To cheer myself up, Iโ€™m going to try do a daily post so we can all marvel in the beauty of old books. Because of my neck pain at the moment, I cannot physically read even a page of a novel without my neck becoming agonising. So, hereโ€™s The Iliad!!

If you like old books, visit the virtual Brooklyn Antiquarian Book Festival today. I just purchased an edition of the classic Arthur Rackham edition of Midsummer Night's Dream from 1922... IT INCLUDES A HAND-WRITTEN LETTER BY RACKHAM. FOR REAL.

My copy of Mrs Smith's The Female Economist or a Plain System of Cookery, from 1810, is battered and spotted. I love the hand written additions (must be the archivist in me) and the little silhouette, perhaps of a former owner.

One of the Christmas gifts my wife gave me was this book. Notice that it was originally gifted on Christmas in 1916.

I started reading The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins and I'm impressed. Reading 19th Century works helps me better understand the time period of the books I sell. It's also quite wonderful to read from an early edition published during the author's lifetime.
