new old books

This weekend we went to one of my fave 2nd hand spots, a house-clearance yard in croydon. originally looking for some furniture, nothing was quite right so we had a trawl through the books instead. they have probably the best selection of vintage books you have ever seen! (and they price things by eying up the armful you bring up to the cash-desk!)

above: 1960 card trick book
above: 1952 penguin handbook
above: Nurses' exercise book from 1965. i found this so intriguing- the content is all like the below image; annotated pictures for different types of equipment setups. Many of them are pretty gross which probably arent used anymore!! (i'll leave it to your imagination!)
