I have this set of 35 OLD leather encyclopedias from 1888 that I bought at a Dr.'s estate sale years ago. Have never even looked at them till recently. I bought them for space fillers on shelves...had no idea they were so old and FULL of old "centerfolds" of maps, anatomy, chemistry, agriculture...you name it. I'm finding a treasure trove here...and the patina on these is unbelievable! GORGEOUS!!! And all of these pics are just in one book...I have yet to look through the other 34. Maybe I'll find some money or a share of microsoft tucked into one of them.
I'm seriously considering framing some of these so they can be enjoyed! What do you think? I can only lay so many books around open as display, should I tear out and frame some of the best pics? circa 1888!!!
*I'm not understanding why sometimes I can get linky bottons to work down here, and other times I can't! What am I doing wrong?
