Fancy Old ABC Books?

abc_abebooks.jpg

In their monthly Rare Book Room selection, AbeBooks is featuring 25 vintage ABC books from their booksellers' inventories. Francoise's beautiful, simple illustrations are always nice to see, and the woodcuts of W.B. Falls' 1923 ABC Book are kind of nice, but otherwise, nothings really convincing me to drop three or forty large.

So unless you spot something awesome, no, I don't fancy, thanks.

I prefer my ABCs to be a bit more grim,

and it's only $8 to boot.
