I have several books from the late 1800's and early 1900's, beautiful bindings and black and white illustrations, unique font, obviously in an older form of English that's interesting to read, and of course the writing style is so different.

But the unique thing is several of them have "to so-and-so" as a gift, with the date, and "from", and I pause when I see that. Here I'm holding a gift someone gave to someone else, for a birthday or just because, and they are undoubtedly dead, and those three lines are such an amazing glimpse into two people's lives and what was important to them.
