Antique books!

Aren’t they neat? These books have been in my family since late 1800’s, early 1900’s. They are school books, and let me be the first to say that it takes concentration to read even the elementary spelling book. It really does show how much a language can evolve, even in just a 100 years.
Anyways, the books include a trigonometry text, both Shakespeare’s Macbeth and his Julius Caesar, Kingsley’s Westward Ho!, Emerson’s essays and addresses and the aforementioned spelling book.
Having history so close you can touch it is really pretty amazing, especially when that history involves your own relatives. 😊
On an unrelated note, tomorrow I will be (hopefully) posting some pictures of my book’s new cover shoot!!
