|This has been a good week for paper -- a wonderful ephemera sale in San Rafael...and five days of the Library Big Book Sale. (No, I didn't go all five days but I did go twice!).|
|I bought two old ledgers...|
|The more I look at my own photos, the more I wish I bought more of this fabulous paper.....|
|If this wasn't enough excitement for one week, then there was the San Francisco Library Big Book sale...|
|I always go to the members preview and then back on the last day (today!) for Dollar Day.|
|Today you just couldn't get me out of this section -- Foreign Language Non Asian. (I went to the Asian language section too).|
Nature and Birds and Garden sections were pretty picked over today but this table still held fabulous finds.
|I mean -- just look at this cover! Doesn't it make you wish you could read Russian?|
1927. Amazing vintage ads and recipes inside -- of course, all in a language I don't know. In fact, I can't actually tell what language it is but I love it. $1.
(anybody know the language?)
|Another fabulous Russian cover!|
|This one is Hebrew and lovely, aged, foxed pages....|
|I loved seeing the various book plates inside many of the books too. I figure I should just go and photograph one day......nah.....|
|This one is Russian/German! A useful combination to someone I'm sure.....|
|The Reference section is always fun too. Even on the first day of the sale, the dictionaries are only $1. They seem to think no one wants dictionaries and outdated atlases but I know for a fact a lot of us DO want them.|
