I just wanted to share some of my favorite websites for vintage books and reviews for all of you fellow vintage book afficionados!
Leaves and Pages
“Bibliovore. Botanist. Gardener. Armchair Traveller and Vintage Book Explorer” And I would add: “Voracious Reader”!
A feast! On this blog I find excellent reviews of books published in every year from 1900 to present, and several amazing indexes on her website pages.
Figments and Frames
I’ve been enjoying following this blog for quite a while. The author of this blog is a writer based in Maine and New Jersey, and this is where she documents her growing antique book collection. She also covers a range of similar subjects, including life in frontier America, Native American interactions, early American and indigenous folklore, and all sorts of literature on food, from hunting and gathering to farming innovations and cookbooks. She says she can’t resist buying old illustrated children’s books and literary classics when she can find them. I can relate!
Books Around the Table
This is my newest discovery, I’m just starting to mine the blog posts.
The Art of Children’s Picture Books
This blog is archived and no longer active, but it is full of eye candy! Have a glance at these sweet images…
And just for fun, check out this Reader’s Digest article, which reports that a first edition of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is worth $180,159!
