Hello CW On This Sunday.....
Yesterday a call came in from a gentleman who owns a storage facility about 15 miles from me. He says he is having a clear the stuff out sale and that he had six boxes of old records if I may be intrested in looking at them. I told him to give me a couple of hours.
I arrived and briefly scanned through. I took them all.
Later, a few hours after returning home I began to unload the boxes and at the bottom of one I spot a large book and pull it out....I was enthralled.
The book is a Bible in Braille for the blind. It is only one volume containing the Old Testament books I Samuel&II Samuel, only two books of the 66 found in a standard Christian Bible. It is marked Volume VI.
This was issued by the American Bible Society. There is no date of print.
Old and worn on the cloth hardback cover and great condition on the inside.
Whether it be a Bible or Salingers' 'Catcher In The Rye', it is wonderful that the visually impaired can enjoy the world of books through reading.
Any info on this would be much appreciated.
A Great Day To You!
