Do these books have any value?
They are wooden covered, possibly olive wood. Both are stamped JERUSALEM on the back. I'm guessing they were purchased from a missionary to support their mission. My Grandmother was very active in missin work, but I don't think she would have visited Jerusalem. They were probably later in her life, maybe 1950s or early 1960s.
One book is a Bible, 4X6", the binding has deteriorated, but the pages are good. There is a split in the woodgrain on the back that has been mended with clear tape, long ago. The other book is 3X5" and has dried flower from Jerusalem. It's binding is shot as well and the pages are brittle.
