My boys are interested in history so hopefully they will want my books but good grief I have a lot and the rib is threatening to buy another dog if I don't stop buying books. Looks like I'll be getting a second pooch.

Just like Ole I have a first edition of Grant's memoirs that were actually once owned by a veteran of the war. I bought them from a woman who became a widow too early and her husband had about 50 books she sold to me for $1 a book in the early 70s. I told her that was much too little for what she was selling me but she said she had no use for them and was just glad someone who would be happy to have them was buying them. It was kind of sad.
