Book submission: Markof

Title: Markof
Author: Greville, Henry
Publication date: 306 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, 1900
Library: Ohio University Alden Library
Call number: 9080121
Submitted by: Mason Love
Description:
This book is filled with a bunch of readers signatures. I found them throughout the whole book, but mainly on the title page! I was surprised to find this book in such good condition for being over a hundred years old! The earliest signature from a reader that I found was from 1930. I hope this brings you as much joy as it did me.

Book submission: Carthage and the Carthaginians

Title: Carthage and the Carthaginians
Author: Smith, R. Bosworth
Publication date: London, 1916
Library: Alden Library at Ohio University
Call number: DT168 .S65 1916x
Submitted by: Casey Machenheimer
Description:
The marginalia is found on one of the front endpapers (the recto side of the frontispiece). It is signed by a previous owner, C. N. Crawford (sp?) in Rio 1919. Crawford proceeds to list four separate quotes that potentially could be from the book itself, but could also be from an outside source. However, this is unclear, since Crawford does not cite the quotes.
