Hello friends! 🎃 We took our first vacation of the year from Oct. 4-11. 👏🏻 We were up in Green Bay, WI where it rained every day but one & was cloudy the entire time. ☔️ I can’t complain because it was perfect book reading weather. 📚 We’ve been RVing for over 20 years. 🚐 We started doing it because we brought my mom & our dogs along. 🐕 Now we love it for the coziness & feeling like we’re at home anywhere we go. 🍀 We were supposed to come back Sat. the 13th but it was going below freezing so we came back early. ❄️ We went to antique shops in Door County & antique malls in Appleton looking for books. 👀 I got a few here & there. I think the best way to get a variety is to get some from all over. 👍 My love of books has now eclipsed my love of vintage! 💗 On Sat. we went to a few estate sales & all we bought were old books! 😁 This is the back of the truck after we came home. 🙌

I was so excited & on such a high—I imagine that is what a heroin junkie feels after injecting. 💉 I will be gearing up for some big sales. Not everything you see will be available immediately. I sprinkle a few books of each type in all my sales on purpose. I am always leary of posting too much & turning people off. 😩 But there is so much book related I want to share! 🤩 I will let you know when the next sale will be when I figure it out. 🤗 #booksale #vintagebooks #reading #vintage #oldbooks

Our first vacation of the year! 🍀 It’s cold & rainy every day. ☔️ Perfect weather for cuddling under a blanket & reading! 📚 Almost done with The Jazz Singer. 💕 I never saw the movie but now I want to. 😇 Hubby is reading The Godfather. ❤️ #whatimreading #readingbooks #vintagebooks #thejazzsinger #thegodfather #rving

Thank you for joining me! 😇 Please look through tonight’s listings & #ephemerajunkiebooks to see if there’s anything you might like. 📚 I’m happy to hold your claims & combine with purchases from future sales. 👍 Have a wonderful weekend & dream of books! 😍

📚Hardcover in good condition of Little Women. Published in 1926, it was written by Louisa May Alcott. Illustrated by Clara M. Burd. Almost everyone has read this book and here’s your chance to have a beautiful copy of it for your own literary collection. Very little staining to the back cover. Minor wear to top of spine and corners. Inside looks like it’s never been read. Pages are firmly intact but spine is just starting to loosen. I couldn’t tell by looking, only by squeezing the spine while closed. The book seems to have a bit larger print which makes it easier to read. Pretty thick at 1 5/8”. A classic 92 year old book!

📚Hardcover in good condition of Oh Promise Me. Published in 1909, pictures by C.F. Underwood. This is a thinner book, not a lot of pages, but the pictures are the star of the show.

📚Hardcover in good condition of On The Road To Make-Believe. Published in 1924, it was written by Frederick J. Forster. Pictures by Uldene Trippe. My research shows it to be a first edition. It was printed by Rand McNally, the company famous for atlases, so you know the quality is top notch. There is staining to the front and back cover (mostly the back). The spine has faded so you can’t read the title. There is a small 2 word stamp inside front cover I can’t read. Mild staining to some pages. There is tearing to the bottom of the pages near the center. They don’t take away from it in a significant way. This book is not bedtime stories but rhymes (spelled RIMES). There are hundreds. A few I’ve heard but many were unknown to me. The pictures that accompany the Rimes are charming! Some are full page but many more are 1/4 page size. There are some “questionable” rimes that would today be considered offensive. Just a reminder how things have changed in the past century! The book measures 9 3/4” by 11”. An incredible 94 year old book! Yours for $25.00 plus shipping. Claim the book on this page and be sure to DM me your email address so I can send an invoice. Don’t forget to call backup!

📚Hardcover in good condition of Games: Revised and Enlarged Edition Of Games For The Playground, Home, School and Gymnasium. Originally published in 1909, this book is dated 1969. It was written by Jesse H. Bancroft, M.P.E. This is an ex-library book from 2 schools: an elementary school and a jr. high school. The book measures 5 1/2” by 8” and is 685 pages. There is staining to the front and back covers. Also to the top pages (that you see when book is closed). Pencil writing inside back cover as well as remnants where the pocket for library checkout was removed. Library stamps on title page and table of contents page. No writing otherwise. This has every game or sport you can imagine playing and how to do it. This would be perfect for homeschooling! One thing I found interesting was the game “Jackstones” which we learned as “Jacks”. I had never seen written instructions on how to play it before. This will keep your young ones busy for hours! An incredible 49 year old book! Yours for $20.00 plus shipping.

Otherwise no other marking inside. Beautiful black and white illustrations as well as diagrams showing exactly what to do. If you’ve ever wanted to learn to sail or you have wanted to create a vignette with this next to a miniature sailboat, this is the book for you! Cover is a pretty pale blue (looks grey in photo).

📚Hardcover in very good condition of Science Experiences With Home Equipment. Published in 1946, it was written by Carleton John Lynde, PH.D. Originally published in 1937, this is the first trade edition. There is some staining to the front and back covers. Very little wear. Pencil writing inside front and back covers. Otherwise, no other marking inside. The book measures 5 1/4” by 8” and is 226 pages. The book features 200 different experiments (then called “experiences”) with illustrations for every one! At the end of the book, there are explanations for WHY things worked as they did when logically they looked impossible. I’ve got to say, I’ve never give 2 figs about science but this intrigued me! It was so easy to follow along and understand. I was captivated and couldn’t put it down. I can see this being part of a homeschooling curriculum. That being said, I think some might be considered too dangerous or unsafe for current times. An incredible 72 year old book! Yours for $26.00 plus shipping.
