There is just something about old story book for children. They have such history. I can picture children pouring through the pages as they read their favorite stories. Or see a Mom reading a bedtime story from one of these books to her little ones. The Mother Goose nursery rhymes certainly are a favorite of mine. I do not, however, have a favorite rhyme. I love them all.

This book dates to the late 1800's. It has just the right amount of wear and tear to instill nostalgic fondness. This book contains such classics as Little Red Riding Hood and Beauty and the Beast, along with other jingles such as Hey Diddle, Diddle and Three Little Kittens.

One of my favorite books to collect is The Holy Bible. I also love collecting any book that has to do with Religion whether it be a Hymnal or a study guide. I've come across some beautiful Bibles in my search for Antiques. I think the first Bible I remember was my Grandmother's. She had a huge Bible with a large ornate cover and it must have been at least six inches thick. I love'd looking through it when I was a kid.
The Christian's Legacy by William Jackson
This book is the oldest Bible I have up for sale at this time. It dates to 1861. Instead of your traditional Bible, this one was designed for making the reading and study of the Holy Scriptures more easy. /store/p356/Antique_The_Christian%27s_Legacy_by_William_Jackson_%7C_1861_Hardcover_Book_Holy_Bible_Compendium_.html
