I found a real antique book that had an interesting title to me, since I am a "holiness" Christian. The title is White Robes: or Garments of Salvation.
Publishing date is 1883, and there is an inscription in the front dated August, 1888.
Imagine my surprise, while thumbing through the book after I brought it home, to find pressed between the "leaves" a dried 3-leaf clover!
I've read of other people finding flowers pressed in an old book, but this is the first time I have ever had this experience. Usually the only thing I ever find in a book is some kind of defacement. So this was a pleasant little surprise.
I have never heard of this author, and I can't say I wholeheartedly agree with every one of his lines of reasoning, but on the whole it was an interesting and helpful read. There is not much teaching about practical Holiness in our era. This subject is vital and important, and merits any time spent in finding understanding on it.
Actually, my purpose in this post is not to expound on a Bible doctrine...I just wanted to share the photos of my interesting "find." You know, more and more, I treasure books and the printed page...
