Picture your favorite old book

The topic of old books and magazines came up during an enjoyable, multi-threaded debate sparked by Peter Jurmu’s guest post “This prosaic method.” I’m interested in all perspectives. If you’re so inclined, please contribute your thoughts to the conversation.

One of our discussion threads reminded me of a recent book purchase, pictured below. If you send me JPG or GIF images of the most beautiful or fascinating old books in your possession, I’ll post them here, in the company of The Red Pony. Email your attached image files to me at mail @ robinmizell.com.

Feel free to add links to your favorite antiquarian and used book dealers in the comments.
