Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

If you could have a book, and money was no object, which book would you like to own. I'm talking about the rare books with this question.

Oldh
I'm not talking about the readable online versions , I'm talking about the ACTUAL books , you now the ones .... you hold and turn the pages by hand ? You need to study mo they are freely ( easy ) to obtain online via ebay or online book shops ! . First editions are harder , I was wondering why anyone would want a first edition when the reprints are freely available , there isn't anything different in them compared to 1st Editions , they are one and the same I've noticed over the years , the ones I have anyway .
