Excited! We collect older books, and I stumbled on this 1899 edition of the Kipling cigar poem I posted above. Love that poem, and now for Christmas the kids got me this Not supposed to know, but Amazon, so I know! Won't get here by Christmas but will get here.
I've got quite a number of old, classic novels, some from the 1800s. Among my favorite collection of books is the original James Bond series, all original printings, in hardback. I also have the entire series, mostly first editions, in paperback. Don't know what they're worth, but I'd never sell them anyway. I'll light up a cigar some time soon and ponder that question.
