I was wondering if anyone collects old books. I mean the ones that you buy and trade that have value to them. I came across a bunch of books from Modern Library. It's a hobby that I really wouldn't mind getting into if I knew just a little more about them. I've found some web sites that have some info on those particular books. Does anyone else collect books like these? DCMerkle

Recently I visited a few antique stores!As there can only buy ... and I like very much those old books, which have since bent covers, pages yellowed and rough and that specific smell old. When it keep such a book in hand, I imagine they are somewhere in ancient Egypt, and read a genuine papyrus ... Maybe I'm a little eccentric, but delight me more than a book that looks neat but junk, but a new, shiny and overload of images.

didi13, I do understand what you mean. I love going to bookstores and libraries just for that same reason, the smell of books. I wish they could make an air freshener with that smell. I'd but it by the cases....lol DCMerkle
