    I was recently given between 75-100 vintage hymnals and song books when the wife of a former professor at Luther Rice Seminary moved from her home into a senior living center. Many are duplicates of books I already have and I don't feel right about selling them, but would gladly donate them to another musician who is interested. I simply do not have the space to store them and our church library is not interested in them.

    Let me know.

    There is almost the entire Singspiration series, there are hymnals from Pentecostal Wellness to old Baptist hymnals. These are not new, they're old and some worn. There's songs for teens, and good old favorites. There's a couple of the old song books they used at Billy Graham crusades. To be honest, most I haven't even looked at thoroughly because there's so much. There's even one in a zip loc bag, an 1899 pocket hymnal.

    There's around 35 or 40 hymnals and probably another 35 or 40 paper-covered song books. I'd love to see them go to a good home. I have a fairly good-sized box they could be shipped in, and I don't know if media mail or parcel post would be the cheapest postage. It'll be a pretty heavy box.

    I used to collect, but pared down to now what I kept is really, really old....before the Civil War old. I simply didn't have the room anymore. I'd love for these to find a good home with another hymnal collector.

    I definitely still have all of them. No one has put their name "in the pot" so to speak.

    Sorry, there weren't any Thomas or Sweet Songsters. They're all gone now...and many thanks to DCorbett for taking them all.
