A few months back, I was going through a bunch of boxes of stuff that has been following me around for years and came across a beat up old book, I didn't immediately recognize it, but when I looked inside, I was surprised to find that is was an original copy of Ralph Waldo Emerson's English Traits from 1881. This book was among some things I got when my Grandfather passed in 1985, it was in pretty bad shape. I sent it off to a book binder in Tennessee to see what could be done. I just got it back today. Amazing, re-binded with a new cover. This will be in the family for many years. I'll post a picture shortly.
