Today I found I have owned a book printed in 1872
Macaulay's Critical and Historical Essays
which is all online now

it was Dad's, but I don't think I've ever opened it.
Now I have, I think the online editions will do for me, and my hardback with the tiny print can go to someone else who wants it. Mum reckons she knows just the shop. Mum has the knowing of charity shops.

Technically I have sorted through an entire box of books to see if I want it, but that's because the Macaulay had a box to itself.

It currently smells a bit funny. Which, by now, not a surprise. But someone else will like it anyway.

Would it sell for pennies as a second hand, or for nice money as an antique?
