You said you got to see some old collections

I was going to specialize in antique/1st edition/special edition books and documents for a while. My life changed courses but I was fortunate to see some amazing collections also and started dabbling in amateur 1st edition collecting for a bit.

I have a Hemingway and Kipling 1st edition, but those are at my sisters house for safe keeping. I just found this really early edition of Treasure Island recently.

It's faded and fragile and old and used. I love the old collections.
