Anyhow-I went to the annual University Women's booksale this weekend and I got some awesome goodies. The whole batch cost me $7.50!!!
A bunch of children's primers and text books--some from the 1920's!! Adorable pictures!!
These were my PMP finds--each $1. The cookbook is an advertising piece from the 30's. The grey book on the left is a children's poetry book from 1909. The middle book is a child's dictionary from 1944. And the real prize is the alphabet book from 1923. The woodcut prints are gorgeous!! Close-ups are below:
Poetry book-poem for each letter in alphabet. Illustrations are gorgeous ( may frame some)
Child's dictionary-I want to scan some of these pages and down-size them to use in cards, etc.
Alphabet book-very Art Deco. The colors are amazing!!
Campfire girls books from 1913 & 1915. Love the covers!
Bunch of kid's books.
Vintage books from 1880's-1920's that I brought cuz I liked the covers!!
An ettiquite book from 1920's (HILARIOUS), a map book from 1940, Wlat Whitman's "Leaves of Grass" and a novel by one of my favorite author's Grace Livingston Hill. An Aunt had a large collection of her works and I've read quite a few of her books-early 20th century Christian romance!!
Vintage Crafts n Things magazines from 1977--these should be a hoot!! Nothing like 70's decor and fashion!!
