Hi Gattina, what a wonderful photo collection for this weeks theme. And books from 1810 and 1916. That's pretty amazing. Love your Agatha Christi collection.

Have a great weekend.

Your book collection looks and sounds amazing! Re encyclopaedias: I remember when they seemed a must for every house and there was such a profession as encyclopaedia salesman...

Such a wonderful and fascinating selection of books, especially the Bibles and encyclopedia in every language.

Most of my books, as I wrote in Photo Huntings, are no longer with me, sad to say.

RNSANE said...

What a wonderful library, and in three languages...or more, actually. I love all the encyclopedias and the Bibles, especially.

Sadly, most of my books are not longer with me as I wrote in my Photo Huntings.

Sue St Clair said...

OMG I LOVE your feline bookends :) That is quite an impressive library. We have two bibles one from Hungary, and the other German. My Uncle has the German one and dates from early 20th century.
