Friday Giveaway: 12 Antiquarian Books - contest closed





I'm giving away these twelve books this week, there are some as old as 1767.

To enter, leave a comment below. You can also enter on Facebook, Twitter or via email.

I will gather up all the entries and select a winner at random tomorrow morning at 10:00 AM EST.

While you're here checking out this week's giveaway, I'd like you to know the bookshop is having a Spring clearance sale. I figured I might as well let you all in on it, even if you make it to the shop. I've set up a coupon for Forgotten Bookmarks readers on Biblio.com, just enter "FORGOTTEN" when you're checking out for 30% off our books. Feel free to use the search form below.

What a GREAT set of books!

Patrick said...

Those are gorgeous. And what it wonderful about pre-1820 books is that the paper quality is much higher than that of books produced later. Eighteenth century paper was typically cotton-based and had a low acidity level. Thus, it is still pretty supple; whereas later nineteenth century paper is typically acidic and brittle.

In this day of facebook, the nook, etc. There is still nothing like holding a beautiful book in your hands, especially an old book and read it as the author meant his/her words to be read. It's comforting in so many ways. Somehow you feel the connection so much more. I would truely love to have these books. I would like to past this feeling
down to my great-grand children. These books would be a great start.

Julie said...

Would love to have these!

I am so beyond in love with these. I have never been so taken by books... And I've been very taken with quite a few.

One of the wonderful thing about books this old is their history...I wonder who held them, what sort of life they've led, what they've been witness to. I'm so glad you and the people on here have such appreciation for these wonderful tomes.

Jennifer said...
