New (Old) Books. . .

For the Biblophiles who lurk on my friends list (**cough** xterminal **cough**).

My Grandmother gave me a couple of books, I have no idea if they are rare, or worth anything but It's definately an interesting feeling to hold something over 100 years old in my hand.

The first is a 1942 Copy of F. Van Wych Mason's - River of Glory (Second Impression) Printed by the J. Lippincott Company of Philladelphia and New York.

The Second is a 1901 Copy of Henryk Seinkiewicz's - Quo Vadis - A Narrative of the Time of Nero (Popular Edition) - Authorized and Unabridged Translation from the Polish by Jeremiah Curtin - Published by Little, Brown and Company, Boston.

The '42, probably not.

The '01... likely depends on the condition (as in, it had better be perfect), and even then, maybe not. My brain isn't functioning completely yet this morning, still on diet coke #1. Can't remember if 1901 was the first English translation or not.
