And, in any case, you didn't ask for obscure books, just the most obscure that we own. So it's possible that a person has no books more obscure than Harry Potter. (Not likely, but not impossible)

To be 100% honest, it would be easier to read if you use proper capitols and spaces along with proper punctuation.

A "capitol" is a set of buildings in which a legislature meets. I rather suspect that you mean "capital" .

Actualy,ive heard the word "capitol" used instead of "capital" in older works or just in an imitation of "old speech" .

The two words are quite commonly mixed up, but it's a mistake to do so. They are similar words with quite different meanings.

I have many of his books and I read them all. A great writer and very obscure too. Not much was known about him.

I have a 50's copy of Fresco: the University of Detroit Quarterly with all the articles dedicated to Lovecraft by authors like Derleth and Leiber. I'd have to dig it out for more info.

Now how's that for sucking up to the thread starter?

I have a 1912 edition of Great Expectations, from the "Everyman's Library" imprimatur, published by J. M. Dent & Sons of London. (This isn't obscure, but does match the OP's obscure ideas of what he thinks obscure means.)

Actually this is not exactly correct. The story/movie, entitled "The Song of the South" which includes the person of Uncle Remus, does fit that description. However "The Complete Works of Uncle Remus" only contains stories about "critters" (or animals to non-Southerners).

Something known as a 'census atlas' for Trumbull County, Ohio, published around 1869 if my memory is right. They were somewhat common in the midwest to show 'special homes', public buildings and churches (graphic, not photo) and who owned land in the county. Each township in the county had maps with roads and names on the lots of who owned the properties, interspersed in the pages were the graphics homes, etc, of the area shown. In the back was a historical appendix of the properties going back to the mid 1830's. My dad's family owned property in the house where he grew up going back at least to the 1830's. The only rare book dealer I knew that specialized in the 'census atlas' was one in Akron - and I don't think he is still in business any longer.

I think it sits on the bottom shelf to the right love seat (see photo at right)

I just realized that i have something that is at the very least uncommon, if not obscure.

I have a first edition World Map Book. it was published in 1981 by the Defense Mapping Agency for NASA, to be used by the space Shuttle crew. My grandfather worked at the DMA, and this was one of his last projects before he retired.

It only has 45 pages, and it only shows airstrips (besides political and geographic features). I believe it was intended to show the orientation and location of places where the shuttle might land in an emergency.
