Yet Another Contest - UPDATE #3: All Prizes Taken

Claire is our first winner. Congrats.

Mr. Burns is number two.

Jack is number three. Thanks to all who entered, and keep an eye in the mail for your books.

I'm hoping this one will be the best yet.

Here are the rules:

Further down in this post, there will an image containing 16 smaller images. These were little snapshots taken from various posts on the site. Hopefully you'll recognize some right away; others you may have to browse around the site a bit to find. I tried to concoct a game that would take some time to figure out. Build some suspense. Anway - on to the prizes:

The first person to email me the correct corresponding URLs (links) to all 16 images will win this fabulous prize:

"Old Curiosity Shop' by Charles Dickens - this is a nice and clean Rand McNally edition, gilt decoration and lettering on cover and spine, gilt top edge. No date, circa 1905.

The second person to email me the correct corresponding URLs (links) to all 16 images will win this pretty OK prize:

Two matching volumes from Thomas Y. Crowell, "The Poetical Works of Elizabeth Barrett Browning" and "Poems of Robert Browning." Both columes are marked as "Astor Editions," and are from 1900 or so, no date indicated.

The third person to email me the correct corresponding URLs (links) to all 16 images will win this humble but still enjoyable prize:

"Ivanhoe" by Sir Walter Scott, published by Thomas Nelson, 1909. Blue flexible leather cover, gilt decoration on spine. A little worn, but hey, it's 100 years old - and free.
