        Even now, almost years later, his wide-ranging biblio-essays continue to provide inspiration and entertainment. His first and most famous contribution to bibliophilic literature was The Amenities of Book-Collecting and Kindred Affections (). This diverse collection of essays reflects Newton as a man and as a collector. If an object is less than years in age, call it a collectible, or perhaps "vintage" if that's common terminology (such as with clothing and jewelry). If you honestly feel that an item is over years in age after doing your homework, then describe it as an antique.
