Hello, My Friends!~~
I collect four sets of things: Holt Howard Pixie Ware, I Love Lucy Barbies, vintage Trolls, and Golden Guide Books.
Today I would like to share a little of my collection of Golden Guide books!
You may be familiar with these wonderful and lavishy illustrated small size books. My collection began when I was 10 and my mother gave me The Golden Guide to Seashores. Then I got The Golden Guide to Birds. And the collection grew in bits and pieces, from used book stores, flea markets, and thrift stores.
There are nature guides, sports guides, travel/regional guides, and more.
The subject matter of these guides is quite variable.
From "Kites" to "Israel and the Holy Land."
And from "Cats" to "Bats of the World."
There are 8 titles I don't own and some command pretty high prices. I'll just wait and perhaps I'll complete the collection out in the field. Hmmmm...perhaps there should be a Golden Guide book to Golden Guide books!~~~XXOO, Beth
