I spent the afternoon digging through old books with my friend at an Antique Book and Ephemera Fair. I like that word "ephemera"...
There were so many beautiful books, but being the first time at a book fair, I was shocked at the prices! I know so many of them were rare, but a little too rich for my blood. I did find this wonderful book by Oliver Herford called "The Deb's Dictionary" a 1931 first addition. The little sayings were so humerous, along with the tiny line drawings that went along with them.
Tact: To lie about others as you would have them lie about you.
Tangle: Getting engaged to more than two boys at the same time.
Panties: A bifurcated lace ditto under which the feminine legs think they are concealed.
