  1. Old Bible found.

    Sorry for being late to add my congrats. I didn't see the post until today! Awesome find! I've had a couple of old Bibles given to me, but unfortunately, with no history to go with them, I can only image someone long since enjoying the glories of heaven with no need for it anymore! :)
  2. Hunt in the River yields BIG Surprise!

    Yes, only 4000 printed and the special version, only 400. The article I read said that they wanted to make a collector's item. It's an unbelievable book with 1000+ pages!

    You've heard it differently than I have from the sellers that I know. either way, we're smart enough to not pay outrageous prices like these!
