Recent Additions To My Postcard Collection October 17, 2017

This past weekend I went to The Seattle Antiquarian Book Fair.  Many many interesting looking books but ………..  I didn’t buy even one.  I had a wonderful time looking though and remembering what I had read where and when.  I’m really a reader rather than a collector.  Anyhow, I particularly thought of my brother and his collection of boys books published in the1920’s and ’30’s.  e.g. Tarzan of the Apes, etc.  My older brother was a great reader from an early age.  And while I didn’t necessarily read any of his books I can remember them on the family shelves and think of the pleasure he got from reading them – a long time ago now.

I digress – my only purchase at the Book Fair was handmade notebook – for my genealogy research notes.  And I was gifted several postcards by one of my favorite sellers – Asian Steppes.
