Who would discard these priceless treasures?

Volunteers sorting through books for a public library book sale came across a rare find: a single, leatherbound volume containing a first edition of Lydia Maria Child's 1833 book, An Appeal in Favor of That Class of Americans Called African, and an 1840 second edition of The Slave: Memoirs of Archy Moore. Liza Holzinger, coordinator of the Bethlehem (PA) Area Public Library book sale, told reporters she couldn't believe what landed on her desk.
