I have an old bible. Its from the early 1900s . One day I hope to have it appraised.
No matter how much it is appraised for, to me all antique books are priceless.
I am sorry to disappoint you, but I heard that antique bibles are fairly common as so many families have passed one down the line and consequently aren't worth much money. Of course the sentimental and historical value to your family are priceless.

I have one!

And it's hoot, ''Mrs Beetons Cookery Book''.
1912.
It tells of not only 'how' to cook things, but how to manage household work, and help for people with 2 or less servants?
It really is a dear little book, but alas on opening it really is so old it makes me sneeze.
Not for a Saturday read for me :( to dusty!
I love the way the old books illustrate such a different culture to modern times. Oh My, imagine those poor ladies trying to get by with less than 2 servants....ha, ha, ha. :-)
I know....lol and we do it alone! (well we do have less family-and washing machines-smaller houses, yep give me now....never then)!

I haved a few I have bought from second hand shops over the years but my prize posession is my grandmothers school poetry book. It was a gift from her sister, the message inside the cover dated 1898.
No. I don't
I am unsure what is classified as antique but I have a couple of very old ones from early 20th century.

I believe the rule of thumb is antiques are more than 100 years old and between 50 and 100 years old it is vintage. None the less, early 20th century is still pretty special.
No, I don't own any old books.
Yes I sure do as I collected old books for years- I have hundreds of antique books displayed in two large shelves.

No, I don't have any old books. I'm not a collector, & none have been passed down through the family.
