A Nice Find

27 Apr

ImageThis is why I love going to thrift stores. “The Home Bible” from 1950 is a personal edit of the King James Version done by Ruth Hornblower Greenough. The subtitle is “Arranged For Family Reading.” It also includes several illustrations from designs by William Blake. With no book names or chapter and verse numbers, the biblical stories and poems flow along.

I found this wonderful book at the Disabled American Veterans Thrift Store in Prescott, Arizona yesterday. I also got the satisfaction of helping a fine group of men and women.
