Oh boy!! If only your Dad had offered them to my Dad back in the early 1970's!!! Ha ha ha

Those were what we used before we had the internet and Wikipedia.

I hope they find a home with someone who recognizes how wonderful they are (were?)!!

every parent should carry at least one volume in their car and take the phones and electronics away from their kids and hand them a book of knowledge

Would the kids know how to read a book? There is no buttons on a book to open it or turn the pages.

That's funny moonshadow! There's no battery port or place to charge it either. Someone will have to show them how to use it.

Just a reminder for Sparky…..

Back in 1970 I bought a nice used set at a garage sale for $20. The very next day a close relative started selling encyclopedias for a living. I felt obligated to buy the new set. Then my wife was having a rummage sale and a very nice young lady chiseled me down to $5 for the set I had just bought for $20.

Then the very nice young lady stopped in and told us all the money she had found in the set, it was a lot. I had bought the set from Bradford Braytons who had just sold their farm and moved to Allouez. Everyone of Bradford’s cows had a name and each knew her own stancel.
