I had an ancient copy of Dracula back in the early sixties.  I am still looking to find it online so I can see how much it was worth.  I don't have it anymore, of course.  Whacko

I had one of these but I left it at home when I left Kansas in 2003.  I wonder if my ex-wife kept it or threw it in a bonfire.  Mine was ex-library.

Ed, I had an original printing of Tarzan of the Apes.  When I went into the Army, my mother either threw away or sold all my books, comic books, etc.  I had an original Action Comics Superman that my dad gave to me, I'm pretty sure I had an original "Green Lantern", all the 1st editions of Marvel Comics heroes.  I think I paid 12 cents each for them.  Another fortune lost...
Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

There are some who do not fear death... for they are more afraid of not really living

Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.
