I just bought an Antique 1st Edition of "The End of an Era" printed in 1901 for only 15$

It's a cultural/historic book well known among history lovers. It is basically a autobiography of John S wise describing his life before, during, and after the civil war.

Considering it is a 120 year old book its condition is absolutely extraordinary as well, pictures attached.

@freemo congrats! I love first editions. I have one from a favorite author from over 100 years ago my wife got me as a gift. We have several first editions now, but it's rare to have them over a century old.

@SecondJon Agreed, I collect them mostly for resale value. This isnt a book that has any particular meaning for me
