Part of the time I work in a remaindered bookshop, the other part I work in a used bookshop.  We often get some quite interesting bits and pieces written inside the books.

This one is my personal favourite so far, an “Ex Libris” obviously composed by someone who has lent out lots of books and never had them returned, it was located in a book on Witchcraft.

For Him that Stealeth or Borroweth & Returneth Not this Book from it’s Owner *Insert Name.*Let it Change to a Serpent in  His Hand and Sting Him, Let Bookworms Gnaw at His Entrails in Token of The Work That Dieth Not and when at last he Goeth to His End let the Flame of Hell Consume Him for Ever and Aye.

 

Bit harsh, but I get where he is coming from…..
