I arrived in town a bit early for the #PNWLitsymeetup to check out the Rose City Book and Paper Fair, featuring rare, signed, and antique books. I think one could wander through for hours (I‘m looking at you, @LeahBergen ).

SilversReviews Have fun at the meetup. 1y

arubabookwoman Meetups are so fun. Wish I had known about this. I‘m in Seattle, but get down to Portland once in a while, and always include a trip to Powell‘s. Hope I can make the next #PacNWMeetup! 1y

Doesn't quite meet the definition, but the earliest books I own. The one on the left, from 1670, is a rebind, probably late C18th, the books on the right, Clarendon's history of the English Civil War, are from 1705.

JMEdwards Wow! 2y
Henrik_Madsen Cool👍 2y
