Two of my favorite books. They are lovely. I have 3 different copies of Wuthering Heights because I love it so much. Where were you so lucky to find these?
Wow, that's awesome! They look to be in great condition too.I went to Barnes and Nobel today found lots of books I would like!
What timing!!! Just yesterday my boss (who knows I collect, love, freak out over vintage books) gave me a 1904 printing of Edgar Allen Poe's Tales of Fantasy & Extravaganza (an extra bonus fun is the publishing company: Funk & Wagnalls Company - don't you love that?) and a 1914 printing of Pollyana Grows Up by Eleanor Porter! They are beautiful additions to my collection! I started reading Poe today....LOVE the copies you scored! They are beautiful.
Wow that is a great score and an amazing price. Enjoy them.
Beautiful! Congrats :) I love finding great book bargains.
Wow, the illustrations are really good. And they're in a decent condition! Lovely!! :)
How awesome! What a great find. :)
Oh I forgot:o)I left you something over at my blog:http://princesscourtneysbarr.blogspot.com/2009/12/id-like-to-thank-academy.html
Those are beautiful! The only thing "vintage" I have is an English book from the early 20th century. My mom and dad bought it for me because I teach English. It's amazing how what's in that book is what we still teach in English! Wish I had a book like yours but there really isn't any for me :(
I would love to know where you scored these as well. They're stunning.Me? Just a few first editions. Nothing old like this.
Lovely find Juju!! I scored as well and now I'm too poor to eat (hehehe). Went to the Borders closing sale and I went bankcrupt!
They are exquisite, so beautiful!
Wow, good score! :)
AIV & Heather: I scored these at a little vintage book store in Louisville, KY (I'm here visiting my in laws)I'm with you AIV. I can't seem to own too many copies of Wuthering Heights.Southern Princess: 1904? That's awesome! Wow :)
Wow! Those are awesome!! Great find!
I have never read either of those books, but just the cover art, all creepy and gothic would make me want to buy them just to have on my shelves. ;)
They're gorgeous! Inking = love. :)
Those are just gorgeous. I don't have anything cool like vintage copies or first editions.
Those are gorgeous! I love vintage books and the art within them. It's so much fun scouring thrift stores and used bookstores and library booksales looking for them. I have yet to find anything as gorgeous as those, though. Nice job, JuJu :D
I love the Wuthering Heights cover. I was just at the bookstore and saw the new cover for it - very much like Twilight - but actually, I like this one better!
I like the vintage look but the women on the Jane Eyre cover look kind of creepy. So are these books "girls only" or would a "manly yet in touch with his feelings and feminine side" kind of guy appreciate these classics too?
Oh my goodness these are AMAZING! I love them.
Wow, I'm jealous! They're both lovely...and at 3 dollars they're definitely a steal.
Awesome find, Juju!The best score I ever had was years ago at a used book store - - I managed to pick up a first edition library bound hardcover of "Rebecca" for $2.
So beautiful! Great finds, Juju - I'm envious. :)
Gregory: Definitely! Definitely read Wuthering Heights. I can't vouch for Jane Eyre (I still need to read it) but Wuthering Heights is amazing and I think appealing to men as well. Lori: Rebecca for $2? SAWEEET!
I haven't read either book but they are on my list! $3 for vintage!? That's AWESOME!
Goodness, I'm so jealous! They look positively lovely. :-) Congrats, Juju!
*burns with jealousy, runs for fire extinguisher*
LOL NotNessie you never seize to make me smile :)
OMG, they look lovely! I'd have to say that the cover of Wuthering Heights is quite something.
You scored with these! Awesome!
Ok, so I'm wayyyy late, but I just saw this post...and for that past 5 minutes, I've been trying to come up with something to say, but I'm utterly speechless!!I am in awe *sighhhh* They are AMAZING! Question, how do they smell? Do they smell all old and musty...I love that! I think old books are one of life's greatest treasures *sniffle*♥Isalys
Isa: Oh thank you! They have that lovely old scent with out being stinky. I just love them. Thank you for visiting this oldie post :)
