There are many things people can rescue. The most obvious are animals. Some people rescue old buildings and restore them to their previous glory. However, I wonder how many people rescue vintage books and spare them from a trip to a landfill. I found a few books that were published over a hundred years ago. They are:
Lovely Mary written by Alice Hegan Rice and copyrighted in 1903.
Kibun Daizin or From Shark-Boy To Merchant Prince by Gensai Murai published in 1904.
The Friendly Road - Adventure in Contentment by David Grayson copyrighted in 1929.
Ship’s Company written by W. W. Jacobs published in 1911.
Barchester Towers by Anthony Trollope copyrighted in 1945.
I realize that we now live in a throwaway society but that does not mean everything should be disposable. Do your part and rescue a book today.
