In the early 70's my parents bought a set of encyclopedias from a door-to-door salesman. We were thrilled, we would read the articles and look at the pictures, it was like having our own library. Along with the encyclopedias there were children's books, 2 medical dictionaries and a set of classic novels. They were quite classy looking, gilt edges and leather-look covers. Some of the titles were "Gone With the Wind", "Rebecca", "Lord Jim" and "The Robe". I read some of them when I got older.
