So, as I was exploring/working my way through my poor 292s shelf,
I discovered this:
My copy of Bullfinch's Mythology has a copyright of 1914.
I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. Look at the poor (taped) spine.
Yes, I think it's beautiful on the inside -- gorgeous color illustrations.
But will students check it out?
According to my circulation stats, apparently not.
Reorder a new, snazzy version like this?
Sadly, I will most likely keep it but add the updated one to my wish list.
My budget is limited and I can't update every old copy and order new (current) titles students want to read as well.
