All three definitely can be described as a #curdler @Linsy I clearly remember the summer Jaws was a smash hit and Mom said I was too young to see it! 😢

I also clearly recall grown up members of my family talking about the horrific Manson murders, in very hushed tones. All these chilling #Vintage #OldCoolBooks are #FirstEditions. 😊

Linsy For sure! I would need a night light to read these, and possibly a freezer to stash them in. What an impressive collection!! ♥️🖤♥️ 1y
TheRomantiCate Is it weird that I‘m dying to read this book?! 1y
CoverToCoverGirl Not at all.. @TheRomantiCate it‘s one of those things that people are horrified and fascinated by equally. I think we‘re drawn to it by need to attempt understand how and why it happened. 1y
TheRomantiCate @CoverToCoverGirl yes... I tend to have a rather morbid sense of curiosity 1y
DebinHawaii Great picks! 😱💚 1y

MAY 12 PROMPT: Rare Books

This 1885 Allegheny Edition of Theodore Roosevelt‘s Hunting Trips of a Ranchman: Sketches of Sport on the Northern Cattle Plains I think qualifies as a rare book. It was originally my great-grandfather‘s, I believe. My grandfather told me his father had hunted with Teddy a time or two, but “a bit of a bigot, he is(Teddy).” Continued 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

ReadZenRites While that‘s not what a kid wants to hear about a US President and one of the “great men” at Mount Rushmore, as an adult I realize he was right. Grandfather also implied that Teddy was not very politic when it came to the rise of the Nazis in Germany, which my grandfather enlisted in the Marines to fight in WWII. History has a very different look as an adult. 😊 2y
