Think about this…
If you were to have ONE book in your library that is collectors editions, first print, signed, which would it be? Now probably there is a million different choices going on in your head right now and I a, here to present three of mine. I know for a fact that I buy at LEAST 100 books a year, but really think are any of these books ones that you would like to keep collecting.
Huge thanks to Ryan from Invaluable, a website with must-have collectibles and antique books up for auction, this question came into my mind. And now I wonder. What would be my DREAM Literary Collection? Well without further adoooooo here is my top three choices.
Gods of War John Toland Signed First Edition Franklin Library
Can I tell you the truth. I literally picked this book out because it was pretty. WELL LOOK AT IT! It is beyond beautiful and the story itself seems very interesting and amazing nought that it makes me want to read it. And lets just imagine that I did read this book, and I did love it and I would want it signed. Hmmmm WELL IT IS! *check*
Set of first editions of Dickens’s five Christmas stories in fine Cosway bindings
Now as you all know and (something Deanna keeps reminding me to do 😉 ) I have never really a read any classic books. But for me the first person to comes to mind when I think about classic literature is “Charles Dickens” so I always wanted to start my classical experience with his book and here is 5 of his in what I may say are just the most beautiful covers.
When We Were Very Young; Winnie-the-Pooh; Now We are Six; The House at Pooh Corner
You know what they say. Save the best for last 😉 Well anyways if any of you follow me on the Twitter machine (shameless self promotion :D) You would know that I have been recently watching episodes of Winnie The Pooh and I get nostalgia every single time I do. I love Pooh bear and Tiger and Piglet and oh my sour skittles if I had these book I am pretty sure my DREAM literary collection would be complete.
What would be some of your dream pieces be in your dream literary collection? I wanna know!
