Women Under Polygamy | Walter Matthew Gallichan

I forgot to post again yesterday! 🤦‍♀️

I don‘t have many books from my family, but this one is from my grandma. She realized that I grin like a fool when she slips her old books into my birthday presents. ♥️ #monograph #oldcoolbooks

DebinHawaii Very cool!!📚👍 5y
LeahBergen Cool! 5y
ReadZenRites Don‘t know how I missed this when you first posted it... How wonderful that your Grandma knows your enjoyment of books! ✨📚✨ 5y
Linsy @ReadZenRites Aww, thanks! 5y

Herbs for the Kitchen | Irma Goodrich Mazza

#OldCoolBooks #monograph

Catch up from yesterday. I don't know if a cookbook can be considered a monograph but since this 1945 one is "...devoted entirely to dishes which the author believes taste better when herbs are used." I'm going to go for it. ?The "Fashion Is Spinach" book that it is compared to on the cover blurb is a classic autobiographical critique and expose of the fashion industry that sounds pretty cool too.

Lindy I‘m envisioning clothing made entirely of fresh greens from the garden... 😜 5y
DebinHawaii @Lindy That title does conjure up that image! 🤣🌱👗🌿 5y
Linsy @DebinHawaii @Lindy 😂😂😂 Thanks for the laugh! 5y

Jane Eyre | Charlotte Brontee
post image

This is the edition of Jane Eyre that I grew up on—I blame it for my lifelong but unfulfilled desire for a window seat. 😊 Jane is perusing Bewick's History of British Birds, which I have never read, but I think qualifies as a #monograph. #maylovesclassics #litsyclassicshost #oldcoolbooks

LoverofLit I also longed (and still do) for a window seat! 5y
LeahBergen I STILL need a window seat. 😫 5y
Linsy Lovely! I‘ve always wanted one as well! There‘s just something about reading in one ... seems like pure bliss. 5y
TheDaysGoBy Agree with everyone - I've dreamed of a cozy window seat. I know my kitty would enjoy it as much as me too 🐱 5y
rubyslippersreads @LoverofLit @LeahBergen @Linsy @TheDaysGoBy This sounds like a universal Litten dream. 😊 5y

The Bugatti Story | L'Eb Bugatti

A #monograph is a detailed study of a single specialized subject or an aspect of it. The above book is a 1967 monograph of my grandfather‘s second-favorite subject (after my grandmother of course 😊), and beneath is a picture of him racing his vintage 1926 Bugatti Type 35.

ReadZenRites Thank you @DivineDiana I always thought he was rather unique 😊 5y
Trashcanman That's very cool, hopefully the car stayed in the family. 😊 5y
ReadZenRites I wish... my grandad had to give up racing in the late 1990s after a stroke and he gave the car to another racer. 5y

The Birds of America | John James Audubon
post image

Here are two illustrations (blue jay & Canada warbler) from Birds of America by John James Audubon. This is the 1947 edition passed down from my Grandpa to my father to me. Although if my brother asks it's still our father's book 🕊
