For those that enjoy giving books as gifts, you'll love this intriguing website posting inscriptions from a variety of books. Here's one of the inscriptions:
“July 3, 1892
When in my grave I lonely sleep,
And the weeping willows o’er [me] weep,
Tis then dear friend and not before,
That I will think of thee no more.”
An 1879 copy of McGuffey’s Fifth Eclectic Reader.
Found at the Georgetown Library Book Sale in Washington, DC. April 2005.
