I came upon an estate sale with a few older books sitting on a table outside. I went over to check them out and discovered these three books . . .
In case you cannot tell from the picture, they are Volumes 7, 8, & 10 of The Works of Edgar Allen Poe, published 1902. When complete, it is a ten volume set. Anyways, I was so stinkin' excited!!!! I LOVE Poe!! I decided to take my chances and take them inside to find out how much they were asking for them. To my surprise, I found them for $1 each, for a total of $3!!! I immediately paid the woman in case she changed her mind! How could I pass up that deal? Honestly, I have no idea what they are really worth, but in my eyes, they are priceless. I have them sitting on a special shelf in my living room. Now, if only I could find the remaining 7 volumes!! Until then, I will continue to admire my current treasure!!
