Purchased on ebay, an old book for SO’s b’day. (Richard Halliburton’s Complete Book of Marvels thanks for asking).
Got it, and, well, there’s a really strong odor. Not necessarily icky odor (almost like old lady bath powder) pretty heady/sweet, and not at all what you want to sniff while reading.
SO is really super sensative to odors. Any suggestions? (I’ve had it ‘airing out’ for a week - and while it’s quite a bit less noticable, it’s still there when you get into reading distance).
