In 1954, Francoise Sagan wrote Bonjour Tristesse when she was only 18, and went on to write “20 novels, three volumes of short stories, nine plays, two biographies and several collections of non-fiction pieces on places, things and people she loved. But so powerful was the impact made by Bonjour Tristesse, and so profound the disturbance it provoked in French society, that it remains easily her best-known work” (The Guardian ) • This beautiful rare 1967 Dell copy is available in the Etsy shop now ✨✨

I'm currently researching these three spooky editions of Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Mummy. They are movie tie-ins, illustrated and in good condition. So far my search has been successful but I'm still not sure I can assign a value to them. 🌱 #halloween #gothic #gothicbook #frankenstein #dracula #themummy #halloweenbooks #rarebooks #vintagesale #vintagephoto #vintagephotosforsale #antiquephoto #falldecor #photos #vintagepostcards #rppc #vintageportrait #ephemera #junkjournal #papercrafting #vintageephemera #booksale #bookseller #etsy #etsyshop #etsysellersofinstagram #usedbooks #vintagebooksforsale #vintagebooks #vintagesales

Found a cool old Polaroid in the shoe box. It was a weird Covid summer and lots of sad things happened but all our great friends and community made it feel ok.

I have three of these spooky, adapted from cinema books. The Mummy, Frankenstein, and Dracula. By Ian Thorne. Scroll to see covers and other pages. They are hard to find and upon looking online, I have discovered they can go for a pretty penny. DM me for details if interested. I'm still researching. 🌱 #halloween #gothic #gothicbook #frankenstein #dracula #themummy #halloweenbooks #rarebooks

Circus performers defy the laws of physics in this visually stunning performance, riding motorcycles inside a mesh sphere ball and looping vertically and horizontally. More dangerous presentations would have more than one rider inside the globe and spectators would hold their breath with the fear of a collision.   #rarephotogallery #photohistory   #vintagephoto #rarebooks #antiquarianbooks #vintagephotography #bookstagram #librariesofinstagram #specialcollections #rarebooks #bookmarks #manuscript

---o0o--- A very rare post incunable tract by Martin Luther, printed in 1524! Ninety-five Theses was thought to have been nailed to the Church door only seven years prior in 1517, and by the early 1520s, some of the earliest copies of Luther's pamphlets, sermons and writings began to circulate Europe, one of which is found here.  Imagine owning some of the earliest Lutheran material out there! A true piece of Reformation history. Find it today at www.1111books.com #martinluther #lutheran #reformation #incunabula #incunable #church #bible #rarebooks #antique #bookstagram #bibliophile #1111 #oldbooks #rare #antiquebooks
