This is one of the oldest books so far in the store. It’s an 1893 copy of The Human Comedy (part one) by Honoré de Balzac. It is an illustrated edition with sixteen wood engravings. • The binding is very loose on the first handful of pages, but the rest of the book has held together fairly well for its age. • They just don’t make books like this anymore. There are so many gorgeous details. • $12.50
I’m amazed at the condition of this pair from 1956! It’s an illustrated two volume set of the works of Kipling published by Doubleday. • They are book club editions. Dust jackets are intact and in great condition. • $15 for the set
‘...It was a feeling; it was an urge that he had to speak. But whatever he spoke he knew would be but another name for the wildness that he sought. It was a freedom and a goodness, a hope and a vigor that he perceived to underlie all the familiar things of his life, which were not free or good or hopeful or vigorous. What he sought was the source and preserver of his world, a world which seemed to turn ever in fear away from its source, rather than search it out, as the prairie grass around him sent down its fibered roots into the rich dark dampness, the Wildness, and thereby renewed itself, year after year.’ **************************************************** Getting lost in the silent, dusty and hot wildness of the Midwest, described in a simplistic, spare but at the same time, intense manner, is a wonderful experience. Thank you, John Williams, for this quiet and unpretentious masterpiece. **************************************************** #bookstagramindia #booksastalismans #margoreads #bookishlust #vintageclassics #johnwilliams #butcherscrossing
1961 Literary Heritage edition of Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter. • This is in fantastic condition. • $6.50
*Spoilers for Tiger's Bride*  I first read The Bloody Chamber in my first year of univeristy and every reading since has revealled something new to me. Before the world of lazy buzzfeed hot takes (did you know Little Red Riding Hood is about *sex*), Angela Carter was blazing the trail for feminsit sexually charged adult fairy tales, revamping the sanitized stories of Beauty and the Beast, Puss in Boots and others into dramamtic tales of female empowerment and true love. My person favourite is The Tiger Bride which has a beautiful message and the power of Carters writing can be summed up in the final lines of Tiger Bride, 'My earrings turned back to water and trickled down my shoulders; I shrugged the drops off my beautiful fur'. (Note: I included Howl by Florence + The Machine because the albums is a great accompaniment to the text; witchy and dramatic, sexual and predatory.) Challenging and provocative, Carter leads you back to the twisted origins of these fairy tales, but modernises them through female agency and sexual control. So if you're in the mood for some 1960s feminism and dark fairy tales while on holiday this summer I'd highly recommend The Bloody Chamber. The longest story is only 42 pages so it's easy enough to get through one before bed or on the beach. Just maybe make sure there's no one reading over your shoulder... #boostagram #bookshelf #feminism #angelacarter #thebloodychamber #thetigersbride #reading #red #florenceandthemachine #howl #vintageclassics

"In order to understand, observe, deduce, man must first be conscious of himself as alive. A living man knows himself not otherwise than as wanting, that is, he is conscious of his will. And his will, which constitutes the essence of his life, man is conscious of and cannot be conscious of otherwise than as free." War and Peace has taken my whole spring semester and a tiny bit more. That's the longest I've spent on a single book.  Well spent time, I think.  There's so much to tell about this story, about the style, about the atmosphere. I felt constantly immersed in it, as if watching a tapestry or a movie. There were characters described to the essence of their cores and events analysed as if for history books and a narrator that came in and out of his story almost as if being a lecturer and the lecture itself at the same time. There were names and balls, and Russian etiquette, and French passion, and trenches and despair. What an epic book! I am sure I missed a lot of details, but I appreciated the contrasts between family life and war scenes, and I felt emotionally attached to those characters as if real.  This is a fantastic book and I thank @bookstagramsteve for giving me the push to start. Truly an amazing reading experience.  #justfinished #warandpeace #leotolstoy #vintagebooks #vintageclassics #books #russianliterature #bookstagram #bibliophile

Classics is not a genre I read a lot but I've been wanting to read them for some time now but I never do. Classics is a genre that I want to read more often than I do. I already planned to read Gatsby and Catch 22 this year.  So when I saw that the lovely Amanda ( @eastofreaden ) is joining  in on the #2020classics (20  Classics before the end of 2020 challenge) hosted by @anovelfamily I thought that would be a great challenge to join and a great opportunity to get me to read old classics and modern classics that I have always wanted to read but never have and to revisit ones I haven't read in 9+ years. . . . ....................📚By the end of 2020 I plan to read: .............. The Great Gatsby // The Lord Of The Rings // The Bell Jar //To Kill A MockingBird //The Diary of Anne Frank // Dracula.// A Christmas Carol // Fahrenheit 451 // Handmaid's Tale // The Catcher and the Rye // Slaughterhouse 5 // Lolita // A clockwork Orange // Middlemarch // Vanity Fair // Catch 22 // Oliver twist // Jane Eyre // 1984 // Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Stories . . ✨Have you read any of these classics I plan to read and are you taking part? . . . . __________________________________________________ #bookish #classicreads  #booknerdigan #booknerd #bookworm #booklover #paperback #totalbooknerd  #bibliophile #reader #bookishgirl #loverofbooks #bookdragon #bookstagram #bookstagramer #bookphotography #epicreads #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookblogger #bookishfeatures #bookstack #hardcover #bookspines #bookstack #bookcommunity #bookgeek #vintageclassics #bookbooksbooks #classicreads #booksofinstagram

#normalpeople _ He’s amused at himself, getting wrapped up in the drama of novels like that. It feels intellectually unserious to concern himself with fictional people marrying one another. But there it is: literature moves him. One of his professors calls it ‘the pleasure of being touched by great art’. _ . . . . . #혼자의시간 #reading #책 #북스타그램 #책스타그램 #독서스타그램 #리딩 #독서  #metime #bookstargram #booklover #📚책읽는혼자#readingislife #책읽기 #readingtime #일상 #일상스타그램 #vintageclassics #booktime #readings #책속의한줄 #소설 #sallyrooney #원서읽기

Have you read PRIDE AND PREJUDICE? 📖 I just finished reading it for the first time. ☺️ It took me quite a while to get into it and get used to the writing style and usage of English. ✍🏼 It definitely made me interested in reading more Jane Austen & luckily I already own two of her other books - Sense & Sensibility and Persuasion (though I'd be most interested in reading Emma next). 📚 But first I definitely want to take a break from Austen and read some modern books again before I dive back into her other stories. 📚 I must say that Mr Darcy disappointed me a bit because he's one of the most hyped male book characters and I didn't really get why. He had a lot less screentime than I'd imagined him to have ; and in the few scenes that he had it was mostly Elizabeth who had the interesting things to say.. I had to force myself to constantly remind myself to see this novel as a piece of its time because otherwise I would have been very frustrated with its primary content being young ladies having and wanting to get married because it's what they're supposed to do. 😬 What I enjoyed most was Elizabeth's sassiness at times. I'm now going to rewatch the movie adaption starring Keira Knightley and am very excited to see this film now with the mindset of having read the novel. 🙌🏼📖🎬 I also can't wait to rewatch the movie "Jane Austen BookClub" once I've read all of Austen's books. ☺️📚 🌺 |unpaid advertisement| - (❗️please credit me properly in the caption and in the picture if you use any of my pictures❗️) - #janeausten #janeaustenfan #janeaustenquote #austen #janeaustenbooks #janeaustenhumor #janeaustenbookclub #prideandprejudice #prideandprejudice2005 #stolzundvorurteil #janeaustenforever #janeausten200 #elizabethbennet #mrdarcy #lizziebennet #mrdarcyforever #vintageclassics #justfinishedreading #justread #bookreview #bookreviewer #readingclassics #classicbook #classicbooks #englishliterature

I can’t get over how cute this Puffin box set is. It is stories of Doctor Dolittle from the 1960s and in near perfect condition. As you can see, the books have been preserved so well by the box. • Somebody claim it before I decide to keep it! • $20
Finished reading Sense & Sensibility a couple of days ago. This was my second time reading it, and I enjoyed it even more this time around. Jane Austen is a master at characterizations, at commentary on society and sentence structure. I could see how some people could consider Sense & Sensibility to be a boring read, but to me, there is something pleasant and relaxing in the pace of this novel. Austen takes her time and it’s so worth it. Rating: 4/5.
Any Scribner Library collectors out there? Here I have three from the 1950s-1960. • The spines show some wear but the books are in good used condition! • $6 each or $15 for all
