Most treasured book in your collection

Stack of old books


All books are treasures, but some more so than others. Over the years we acquire books that may be older than others - they may be older than ourselves!

Do you own any books that are prized possessions, and what makes them special?

The 'Reader's Digest Omnibus'.
I got this as a Xmas present in 1959. It was THE only one ever produced.
I read, then re-read its' stories' countless times, as a child.

'The Day I met 'Midnight'
'They Remember the 'Birkenhead'
'Madame Taussaud's ' Waxworks'

It was my constant companion, & I learnt much from its' stories!

I could not decide on this -I have an original Peter Pan illustrated book that is an antique and it is in beautiful condition and even has a dust jacket -however, having about 200 very old illustrated children's books, it is really hard to pick a favourite.
I love my old May gibbs, Ida Renoul Outhwaite, and Edith Howes illustrated books.

The one that is open on my desk 24 hours a day, and read all the time.
Or I would not make it through my day.
