Flea market stories;Old book edition
Thread: Flea market and garage sales stories.Thank you for your stories and Happy New Year!
I have large collection of old books.Most of them are from flea markets,some from antique book shops.

My best finds include

1. 1st edition of Polish Novel "The Peasants" (one of the tomes) [link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)] Nobel awarded book (flea market find )

2.1st edition of Tales of Tatras 1912 famous work of Polish poet Tetmajer [link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]

3.Two books that belonged to British captives from Stalag XI-B
[link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]

4.Book that belonged to library of Government of General Government

[link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]

and many many more.Maybe even too much .Sometimes it's difficult to find book because there is so many of them in my house.Buying old books for good price is best investment .Tips:don't buy German books from Weimar Republic and Nazi Germany.They are using old german gothic alphabet.Nobody likes them,they are difficult to read.Share your amazing stories.

My oldest book is from 1790

Richard Avedon, Zaha Hadid, Willie Morris all autographed and increased in value. All the Rolling Stones form day 1 and all Playboy from day one, including the spook edition in October.
