"Book and Magazine Collector" by Peter Guy
Hi, I am wanting to dispose of a full run of "Book and Magazine Collector" magazine from issue 1 to 200. They are in good condition except for marks in the advertising part where I have indicated items of interest. In view of the weight I think I would expect the person getting them to collect...

"Book Sales" remainder catalog - how to find? by Sophie Borodin
Hello, In the very helpful article Jessica Amanda Salmonson wrote, "Where Do Booksellers Find All Those Books?" (http://www.violetbooks.com/where-oh-where.html), she mentions "the generically named "Book Sales" catalog. I did a Yahoo search to try and find it, but such a generically named place...

"Booking in the Heartland" by Art Layton
Before leaving on vacation, I went to the shelf in my local library that has books about book-collecting. I picked up a copy of "Booking in the Heartland" by Jack Matthews. I have been rewarded by reading about Mr. Matthew's particular specialty in collecting and how he values books. I guess I knew...

"Crossroad Blues" points? by ann greenfield
This is probably a Jon Meyers question (and the type question this group was originally formed to answer but that's a discussion for a different day)... In the Bookfinder listings for this book, three points are mentioned for a first state dust jacket. One is pretty simple as there is a blurb...

"Da Vinci Code" -- BCE or not? by visualweasel
Hi everyone. I have a copy of Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code". The copyright page states FIRST EDITION, APRIL 2003, and has the full numberline, just like the true first printing should. It also has both well-known first printing mistakes ("skitoma" and "Lyon"). But here's the weird part. The book...

"Ex-Lib"category : Are their differences? by MTSaler
I recently purchased a first edition of Bradbury's _The Martian Chronicles_. It's an "ex-lib" copy, since the front free endpaper is stamped: "Editorial library copy do not remove from office must be returned to library." But, since it's a first edition, first binding state with vg dj, I was happy...

"Flyboys" by James Bradley by Art Layton
I just finished reading Mr. Bradley's latest book, "Flyboys", about the use of air power against the Japaneses in WWII. I expect this book will become a classic. However, it is likely there will be some negative feedback because of the discussion of American atrocities during the Pacific war. What...

"Happy Find" at a FOTL sale by ann greenfield
Last Sunday I had a marvelous time at a local FOTL sale. Since brags don't seem to go over very well any more, I'll call this a "happy find". I had picked out more than 30 mysteries (all firsts, to either keep or give to friends) when I spotted what I thought to be a pretty good SF title...Orson...

"Pound of Paper" by John Baxter by Art Layton
Picked up a copy of this book last night at the library. Great read especially if you are oriented towards collecting English authors and their books (I am not). If anyone is interested in reading books about book-collecting, I recommend all three of the Goldsstone books "Warmly Inscribed", "Used...

"Satanic" book by Alfred Armstrong
From what I can glean from listings on Abe (none over $45) this http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2973902158 is actually - and appropriately - a moralistic series of observations on human folly. I wonder if there is one on the subject of gullible people who fall for the spiels of...
