    I bot teh book.

    I walked into the library to get a manual for changing my brakes on my car and found these two books really old selling for a dollar. Both of which i've never read but desire to do so. I don't see a print date, but one is 1930 copyright other is 1949, and both say made/printed in the US(shocking). Cool sauce.

    That Tolstoy translation will make a nice bookend. There's been better since.

    There's something weird about Grapes of Wrath in a snobby binding. But maybe that's me.

    Maybe it is publisher irony.

    They are from some "international collectors library" and are all bound fancy smancy, there was some 8 other books but i never heard of the titles. For 1, its worth it to me lol. They look cool, they are all browned on the paper and look old.

    I really don't see how those are going to help you change your breaks.

    Hit some used bookstores. If that seems like too much effort go to Amazon, find a book and then click on used. I buy tons of books from Amazon for a few bucks each.

    If that doesn't float yer boat just go to the library and borrow it. I do that too.
