A happy picker

My "Cheesehead" friend called me up at the beginning of the week and mentioned that she had 3 free hours everyday to play. Do I want to thrift with her? Dumb question..haha We got together yesterday and today and this is what I found at either our local Flea Market or Thrift Stores.

Can you believe that book was written by Dr.Seuss?

The Seven Lady Godivas was first published in 1939.

What a treasure this was to find among a bunch of books.

 Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Through The Looking Glass
published in 1881. Upon further research of this book, I noticed that the Illustrators last name is mis-spelled on the front cover. It should read Tenniel like it states on the author & illustrator page. Anyone know where I can get more information on this book?

The book is tattered, the front cover is torn off and the back cover is missing.

I picked through the box and having a love for old vintage books I picked this up and asked the owner of the T.S. how much?  She saw how tattered the book was and gave it to me for FREE!!! This is definitely one of my better finds.

Overall I had lots of fun with my friend, even if she's from
