It was amazing, The End of Eternity is my first Asimov book, I just couldn’t put it down! EDIT: In the picture above, it’s actually the only book I’ve finished. I had to read Huck Finn for school, but up to a certain point,

The copyright page doesn’t give any date. The only year in any of the publication pages is at the back, each stamped 1-1926, 2-1926, etc. [Like this](https://i.imgur.com/kx5L1Cd.jpg) and [this.](https://i.imgur.com/26BmxER.jpg) Any ideas, let me know!
[121 Days of Urban Sodom](http://www.amazon.co.uk/Days-Urban-Sodom-Jacqueline-Phillips/dp/1873741944) Simply because I had just finished reading the original De Sade. It is bad lesbian porn. I couldn’t finish the first chapter. I flicked through the book and just read out parts in derision. I think I still have
I’ve never heard of the appendices being includes in FotR. It’s always with RotK. The [LotR wiki](http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Appendix) has this to say about the appendices: >There are several Appendices located after the end of the Return of the King story; the last section of the
I’m not sure how you would access those books, so I’m afraid they are meant to be decorative. Still, I feel like I’d be able to find many hidden secrets within the book cases if given the chance… except for the Federal Tax Guide.
Oh yeah. Braced for downvotes for my baseball cap. It was a gift from a beloved back in NYC. Over here, the cap just means that an American’s under it. And it serves to remind me of NYC, love, and baseball.
I have their reprinting of Oliver Byrne’s 1847 color production of [Euclid’s Elements](http://www.taschen.com/pages/en/catalogue/classics/all/42827/facts.byrne_six_books_of_euclid.htm) and it is *fan-fucking-tastic*. Anyone with a fleeting interest in beautifully published books, design, or mathematics should check it out (it can be found much cheaper elsewhere, though).
Unfortunately I only know that it was picked up somewhere in Germany during WWII. It is a hymnal, with a lot of hand-drawn pages. Many of the pages are also block-printed, with every neume having it’s own block stencil. There are several notes on
It’d open up in such a way that the equivalent of one rectangular piece of paper is exposed. This is helpful for people who are left handed, refuse to flip notebooks, and hipsters.
“Chetham’s Library was founded in 1653 and is the oldest public library in the English-speaking world. It is an independent charity and remains open to readers and visitors free of charge.” http://www.chethams.org.uk/
The Old red books are a set of Church Newsleters from the mid 18 hundreds. The Schottish Standered Barrer from 1863 is the one you could see from photo. *HighFive*
I know, right? I was somewhat interested in these, but if I’m going to be buying collector’s editions, I want them to at least be trade paperback sized, especially for “door stopper” fantasy. Now if B&n were to release asoiaf in their leatherbound hardback
There’s an internet price, then there’s a value. I tend toward assigning the right value to a book. The internet price can only serve as a guide, if that. If I used the internet as a pricing guide, many of these fine books would
This is the next book I buy, to go alongside my newly acquired More Than Complete Hitchhiker’s Guide (leatherbound, gilt, 20 years old and is in brand new shape, $3 at yard sale) and my 1976 The Hobbit boxed (also in perfect shape)
Much medieval music notation used only four lines. There’s [a Wikipedia article](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neume) on it.

Amazon’s Kindle Matchbook is a good start as well. I will always buy the physical book as I prefer it, but it’s pretty cool they are doing this now. And that it’s retroactive is even better: Amazon Now Offering Users Discounted Or Free Digital
Which version was it? From what I’m reading they have the original leatherbounds (which have a tassled bookmark built into the spine) and leatheresque ones without the tassel. Apparently their limited runs were actually limited. Pity they went out of business. Folio Society and
Well, some of the humouristic poems or ballads have sexual allusions in them. So, your idea might not be so odd or immature after all.
Peter Smith has a series of books on sewing single sheets to each other, without needing to make signatures…this is adapted from one of his designs. Basically, each station has thread on each end, and you weave the thread to attach it to the
Sorry for the late reply, I haven’t had a computer for a few days. I bought the top one and the bottom two at different garage sales in my area. The Wonderbook I bought at the Tucson Festival of Books from a vendor that
I feel like a moron for never having met him in my 4 years there. He seems so awesome, and he’s a scientist turned writing sems professor! Thanks for the video.
A friend of mine was sick or couldn’t go one time when he was in town for a book signing so a friend had him sign a book for her. He wrote: To Kathy, I’m so angry I missed you. Next time he came
So if you try to buy the board game through the link you provided you get a pop-up that tells you its unavailable. I don’t know why you get the impression it was produced to support libraries, it was made in 2011 to celebrate
