365 - take 2 - 325

I wandered round to see Ronnie this lunchtime - he has a shop round the corner which he fills with stuff from the house clearances he does. It's rare for me to leave the place empty handed.

Happily his prices are very sensible - a little leather bound book today cost me the price of a coffee - Delectus Sententiarum Graecarum, and Usum Tironum Accommodatus. I thought the inscription said 1918 but closer investigation shows it's actually 1818 - so it's been around a while............

I google translated the Latin titles, and the second one came up as "Appropriate use of new recruits". Made me chuckle!

Neat - I'll have to see if I can find a proper translation somewhere - it's been a long long time since I did Latin at school Smile
