Who reads anymore? Books are one of those things where you put them on a bookshelf where they sit and look pretty. Therefore these books are some of the best ones to set out because they’re darn pretty to look at. Use them to accessorize, stage shots, or just pretend that you’ve got good taste.
Or maybe you want to start a collection of turn of the century hardcover books. In that case, these are darn cheap for the money: one’s worth about 30, one’s worth close to 80. I’m not telling you which ones though. All have solid bindings, and all are sans dust jacket, as issued. I’ve learned my lesson about buying books without dust jackets. (namely, don’t)
