Most of my books are catalogued on LibraryThing. According to their data, an edition of Gulliver's Travels from 1881 is the oldest book I own that has a known printing date. When I was about ten, I found it in my father's old room in my grandmother's house and he let me keep it. There were a bunch of other books I got the same way but most of them are now lost.

I also have my great-grandmother's family Bible which is probably printed about 1885-1890.
