📩Sellers note: I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed this book. It was first published in 1918. US Customs banned the book as obscene until 1931. It was the first book to note that women’s sexual desire coincides with ovulation and the period right before menstruation. The book argued that marriage should be an equal relationship between partners. This book is referenced by characters in 4 different episodes of Downton Abbey. The most compelling thing to me about this book is how outspoken for the time it was. I’m not going to spoil it by saying more but it is such a brilliant read!📩 📚Hardcover in good condition of Married Love. Published in 1927, it was written by British academic Dr. Marie C. Stopes.

📚Hardcover in good condition of Animal Farm. Published in 1946, it was written by George Orwell. The book measures 5” by 7 1/2” and has 118 pages. I had never read it until I found this copy. It is supposedly a political novel which reflects on socialism and dictatorship. It is about animals on a farm that revolt and start a revolution. They run the farm themselves without humans. The whole time I read it, it felt like a combination science fiction and horror story. If you’ve never read this, I recommend it! It was voted one of the 100 best English language novels by Time Magazine. It was #31 on the Modern Library List of Best 20th Century Novels. A profound 72 year old book!

📚Hardcover in good condition of Adrift On An Ice-Pan. Published in 1909, it was written by Wilfred T. Grenfell. The book measures 4 1/2” by 7 1/2”. There is wear to the corners and top and bottom of spine. Pencil writing in first few pages as shown. This is a harrowing account of the true story of Grenfell when he was working as a doctor in Newfoundland. As remote as it is there now, you can imagine how it was in 1908. He had to cross the ice with his sled dogs to reach a patient and the ice started breaking up. An ice pan is like an iceberg and he tells how he floated around on one unsure of ever being rescued. Some grisly parts that I won’t get into but it was a riveting read. A rare 109 year old book! Yours for $26.00 plus shipping.

📚Hardcover in good condition of Black Rock: A Tale Of The Selkirks. Published in 1900, it was written by Ralph Connor. It was his first book. The Selkirks are a mountain range in Idaho, Washington and British Columbia. Gold was discovered there in 1857. That is where the novel takes place. Ralph Connor is the pen name of Rev. Dr. Charles William Gordon. He was a leader in the Presbyterian church. He was appointed missionary in Banff, Alberta in the 1890’s to a rough crowd of miners, lumbermen and ranchers. His character in the novel is a painter who plays the part of observer (narrator) and friend. It is set in these surroundings with the bringing forth of a Temperance League (to ban alcohol). There is a religious bent to the story but it’s not preachy. I found it more of a Western tale. A satisfying 118 year old book! Yours for $16.00 plus shipping.

📚Hardcover in fair condition of Whitefoot The Wood Mouse. Published in 1922, it was written by Thornton W. Burgess. The book measures 5” by 7 1/2”. The pages are discolored and very brittle. You have to be careful turning the pages or the corners just break off. The story is incredibly detailed. The mouse goes on adventures, finds a new home, a mate and eventually the mate has babies. The feelings attached to the mouse are human with the mouse being fearful of some animals and friendly with others. An entertaining 96 year old book! Yours for $10.00 plus shipping.

📚Hardcover in good condition of More About Live Dolls. Published in 1924, it was originally published in 1903. it was written by Josephine Scribner Gates. The book measures 5 3/4” by 8”. Whatever covered the spine is missing. A child affixed colorful stamps to the inside of the back cover. Original owner’s name (Valerie M. Hurst) and date (Christmas 1926) are written in pencil inside cover. This is a sequel to “The Story Of Live Dolls” by the author. I find the dedication funny: “To all the wee madonnas wherever you may be whose pure, sweet mother-love for their dolls is to me a sacred thing and whose hunger for them to be alive is most pathetic”. Nice solid book with no other writing inside. An unusual 94 year old book! Yours for $20.00 plus shipping.

📚Hardcover in good condition of Mickey Sees The U.S.A. Published in 1944, it was written by Caroline D. Emerson. Illustrated by Walt Disney Studio. I believe this to be a First Edition although it isn’t marked as such. It measures 6 1/4” by 8 1/2”. There is wear to the corners and top and bottom of spine. The cover seems a bit loose but it isn’t, it’s just how it was sewed on. The book is nicely intact with minor soiling inside. There are many illustrations that are top notch! Plus the story is intriguing! It has Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Pluto the dog traveling across the USA and stopping at all the landmarks. First they start out in a travel trailer. This had me actually laughing as I read it because just like RVing, there is always something going wrong or breaking down! They try out other modes of transportation and have a wonderful trip. A must-have for any Disney fan! A delightful 74 year old book! Yours for $20.00 plus shipping. Claim the book on this page and be sure to DM me your email address so I can send an invoice.

📚Hardcover in fair condition of Wait Till The Moon Is Full. Published in 1948, it was written by Margaret Wise Brown. She is the author of the children’s books: Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. This is an ex library book so it has seen better days. There is staining, marks where cellophane tape was, a notation written in pen about a $1 fine paid in 1957, etc. This is a story for a younger child with a lot of repetition of the title phrase. It teaches about all the animals that like to come out at night. There are many illustrations that are just adorable! Cute enough for framing. The book measures 7 3/4” by 10”. A precious 70 year old book! Yours for $10.00 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 great condition of Are You Cashing In? Published in 1928, it was written by Clarence Hough. This book was specially printed for L.L. Valentine 1448 Lake Shore Drive Chicago USA. It is signed by Louis Lincoln Valentine. It is a guide on how to succeed in business. Subtitled "The 'Old Man' tells the boys how to get there.” It is dedicated to: Those who want jobs, those who hold jobs and those who have the jobs to give. Measures 5” by 6 3/4”. This is a very rare book that I couldn’t find anywhere on the internet! It covers so many subjects: cooperation, education, reputation, a bad temper, etc. This was written only a year before the stock market crash of 1929 which makes it even more interesting!

📚Hardcover in poor condition of The Practical Cook Book. Published in 1915, it was written by Florence Austin Chase. The cover is starting to come off and the binding is starting to separate. The covers are stained as are the pages with age, fingerprints and food spatterings. If you can get past the griminess of the pages, you will love this cook book! It’s a rare one that was obviously loved and used frequently. An amazing 103 year old book! Yours for $10.00 plus shipping.
