Woman finds hoard of ‘first edition’ books in ‘hidden’ room under her house

A woman claims she has found a "hidden room" under her house packed full of old "first edition" books which some people reckon could be worth a fortune.

In a clip she uploaded on TikTok, @lynnwhitfield7 shows shelves of dusty leather-bound books packed together on floor-to-ceiling shelves.

Some of the books have fallen over and others look like they have just been chucked aside, with ones on the lower shelves appearing to have torn covers.

On the plus side, books on the top shelf appear to be in pretty good condition.

Lynn then zooms in on a third-edition of a book titled Civilisation Past and Present, which unfortunately is only valued at £5.17 by Greener Books in London.

In another video, Lynn claimed some of the books are first editions and she has booked appraisers in to value them.

The footage has been "liked" more than 280,000 times on the video-sharing app and many people were impressed to see books dating from the mid-20th century.

Some people even joked the books could be containing magic spells.

One fan wrote: "Hogwarts that's the passkey to Hogwarts."

A second viewer quipped: "It's not the year dude, put it back before you unleash something."

"I'm sure some of those are worth lots of money," pondered someone else.

One person, with a rather sad experience, wrote: "Listen, my grandmother was a book person.

"She had books from 1700 and I will tell you some of them are worth nothing.

"She had hundreds of books and they are all sitting in boxes and body wants to buy them."

This comes after a woman was gobsmacked to find a secret room hidden behind a bookshelf in her home and later joked, although it felt a bit spooky, she would use it hide and eat snacks away from her kids.

Another homeowner was shocked to find a secret room hidden in the brickwork of their house five years after they first moved in.
