Re: Cmas present

Wow, Auralie. I looked on Abe's Books, and the cheapest Possum there was $180+ from a bookseller in Australia.

What a treasure, Jim.  Where did you find this gem?

Not in the same class at all, but I recently searched for a book I
thought my youngest generation of grandchildren should have - Frank
Tashin's "The Possum That Didn't."  This wonderful book had been a
favorite of my older sons. I knew it probably wasn't in print, but I was
not prepared forwhat I found.  Amazon provided a source for two copies
from antique book dealers. One was priced at $295.00, and the other at $850.00. I pulled my battered copy off the shelf and scanned it in, making a pretty reasonable copy that the kids can play with. I wasn't about to
give them mine.  Maybe I should put it in the bank.  Does anyone else
remember this book?

Bought myself a present this year, which just arrived. It's Philip
Miller's "The Gardeners Kalendar; Directing what Works are necessary
to be done every month in the Kitchen, Fruit, and Pleasure-Gardens, as
also in the Conservatory and Nursery." 11th edition; 1757. It's a bit
worse for wear but quite legible. Calfskin binding and good rag paper.
Altogether, it's in pretty good shape for being 250 years old.
