    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!

    Thank You,
    Thomas.

      I was lucky enough to know a women who volunteered in WII to help the returning vets who were hurt during the war ... she did want to be a nurse and felt she could do more for those that lost their sight ....so she wrote to the war department asked what could she do for them ..they wrote back and said we really need to have people to rewrite books for them in Braille. And we can send you information how to do that. and which book we want done .... Now we were sitting on her front porch one hot summer day when I was there to do some work for her and her sister on their house that there father had built ...she and her sister were both in the middle 80's and all so sweet, god fearing women .. so I was on my lunch break sitting on the front porch and they both came out and sat with me and start telling about the house, there family and them self's,... that's when one sister told me the story about how her sister spent all most 4 years rewriting a book in braille.,. Well I said that quite a commitment she took on I said ...the sister said yes it was .she hadn't told anyone what she had been doing until she finished the book. She said ,, she was so proud of herself she said ...But then about 3 weeks later the book was returned to her with a letter saying we are sorry you spent so much time on this book but we cannot use it,.. every word is backwards in the book ...well after reading the letter she broke down and pined for a week ,... her sister told her you'll just have to do it over the wright... It’s just the way these two lovely old girls were raised ... so she redid the book and another 4 years of work of writing the braille book ....I just looked at her sister and said I know I could never of done anything great in my life such as what you did ....So mr T I hope you'll pass it along to someone who can use this book....and that's the end of the story ....later

      What A Enlighting Story Of Self Sacrifice! I did not mention, but on the inside of the front cover there is a inscription from the publisher to pass this along to those in need when done using. Your story has brought me my serenity for today!!! Thank you Recordmantime for taking the time to share it!!! Kudos!!!
      Jenni, Have a blessed day! Thank you!

      I am in no way a book collector but I can appreciate this item as well as the story in the above post. Some go off and fight a war and become a hero. Others forever remain unsung hero's.

      Thomas,
      This is absolutely incredible! What a wonderful find! I guess this proves that being in the right place at the right time most always pays off.
