Conducir sin rumbo con la música a tope, encontrar un almacén de segundas oportunidades y entrar a revolver. Perderte en sus pasillos, olvidar hasta la hora... Estornudar.  Polvo y arañas.  Quincalla y vieja novela, la palabra sepultada en mil páginas en sepia.  Ejemplares por doquier que tuvieron dueño un día; un nombre en tinta oscura, caligrafía esmerada, la del ávido lector que dejó su huella breve. Ilusiones envasadas en bloques de celulosa: Se llaman libros, y ayudan a soñar, a olvidar, a evadirse de la ruina.  Literatura que en suma, como el vino y la ginebra, es de alta graduación.  Algo que se almacena, que se consume y se presta; a veces se comparte, y te hace perder el sueño... Suele crear adicción, y siempre me lo pregunto: A dónde irán mis libros cuando yo ya me haya ido? ........... Driving aimlessly, with loud music, coming across a discount store and stepping into the shop to rummage through the stuff.  Getting lost in the corridors and even leave time behind. Sneezing.  Dust and spiders, trinket and old novels. Words buried under a thousand sepia-toned pages. Books  everywhere; in the past they were owned. A name signed in dark ink, the avid reader handwriting leaving a trace on paper. Illusions packaged in cellulose blocks: They are called "books", and they help to dream, to forget, to scape from downfall. Literature acts as wine and gin, as a strong alcoholic drink. Literature can be stored, can be consumed and lent; sometimes we share copies. Literature keeps us awake at night. We become addicted to reading. And I always wonder where my books will go when I am not around anymore.  #leer #lectura #bookstagram #books #librosenespañol #librosrecomendados  #cementeriodelibros #librosmiadiccion #lectura #gretaalonso #bestseller  #recomiendoleer #instabooks #bookstagramespaña #beautifulbooks #leeresvivir #libros #escritora #literatura #leoyrecomiendo #antiquebooks #librosantiguos

BLAEU,W. - Africae Nova Descriptio. (Amsterdam, 1645) AUCTION CLOSING TOMORROW  A fine example of one of the most decorative early maps of Africa in original color. 2nd state of 1621-30. Latin text on verso. The top border panels consist of oval vignettes of nine principal cities. The map also depicts in its side panels a variety of costumed couples in traditional dress, including Moroccans, Senegalese, “Merchants in Guinea,” “Congolese Soldiers” and others. Nine ships, all flying Dutch flags, flying #fish, whales and #monsters are used to fill in the oceans while elephants, monkeys and lions, ostriches and camels are depicted on the continent. The Nile is shown according to Ptolemy with its sources arising in Lakes Zaire and Zaflan; the fictitious Lake Sachaf of Laurent Fries appears, as well as the R. de Spirito Santo. This stands as the most iconic map of Africa of the 17th century by the leading cartographic publisher of the Dutch Golden Age. #auction #maps #cartography #cartographia #history #surveying #nile #navigation #history #mapporn #instruments #antiques #old #raremap #rare #instahistory #instamaps #instaantiques #collection #passion  #science #antique #travel #historia #instamaps #egypte #amsterdam #africa #antiquebooks

Fontana, Domenico (1590) Della trasportazione dell’obelisco vaticano, e delle fabbriche di nostro Signore Papa Sisto V
Recently gifted myself an original printing of the Gustav Dore edition of Rime of the Ancient Mariner.  Spectacular wood etchings from the 1800’s by a man who was undoubtedly one of the greatest artists of all time and certainly my personal favorite.  #books #book #antique #antiquebooks #rarebooks #rarebook #art #classicart #vintage #collectables #collectablebooks #bibliophile #gustav #gustavedoré #gustavedore #rimeoftheancientmariner

Oh yes, there it is, third one from the right. Good Cooking Made Easy and Economical.  This book found its way to me, after my father died. I was certain I had struck gold! Surely, that was my grandmother’s fruitcake recipe, and in her own hand! Not to be. Apparently, the writing belonged to Auntie Kate, according to her namesake, my sister.  There are other treasures within its pages. A newspaper cut out of Chiffon pie recipes, fried chicken recipes cut from a magazine, and How to Score Contract Bridge ( what ever the heck that is!) I am honored to be the current custodian of this well loved book!  Do you have cookbooks, passed down, from family members? Do tell!  #oldbooks #oldcookbooks #inheritedbooks #goodcookingmadeeasyandeconomical #booklover #cookbooks #antiques #antiquebooks
