"The Illustrated Library of the World and Its Peoples" - recent editions? by [email protected]
This comes in 17 red volumes, I think, with LOTS of color photos, and each volume covers two or three small countries, or, in the case of China, the reverse. (That is, China takes 373 pages, or more than a volume and a half.) I'm guessing it's suitable for use by high-schoolers. The trouble is,...

What Do Willow Arune (William Orobko) and Michael Jackson Have in Common? by Pangarune Corner
What garbage. Not true at all. Now, apparently someone has brought up the Andrea James Survivors Group. Yes indeed. That group was started for a purpose. At the time, Andrea James had used her web site to attack many TS women and others. An individual response to her was not appropriate. I...

This maybe a stretch but... by [email protected]
I am looking for a book I thought it was called "The Egyptian Club". I read this book in 4th grade probably about 23 years ago. It was about a group of kids who create a little Egyptian city in an unused lot in the inner city. I would like to try and find this book but all I have to go on is a...

Lousy book that makes mass-murderer Saddam look good! by [email protected]
The book is The Greatest Story Ever Sold. It has no mention of Saddam's dreaded Anfal Campaign where he killed 180,000+ Kurds in one year or the fact that Gaddafi of Libya quit his own nuke bomb building project directly due to Saddam's demise by the occupying American Forces in 2003. The highly...

Please don't respond to cross-posted politics threads without trimming the headers by michael adams
Please don't respond to cross-posted off-topic politics threads - even to criticise them - without at least trimming the headers to r.c.b. Cross posters are often clueless and immune to reason and so not trimming may simply make matters worse. Thank you

What book has eluded you the longest? by The Bobino
I've been searching for a copy of "The White Ribbon Boys Of Chester" by Raymond Sperry Jr. (Stratemeyer Syndicate pseud.) since the late 80s and it has proven extremely elusive. I have yet to see a copy come up on eBay or any other auction site. In fact, I have never personally examined a copy of...

After many succesful years on 5th Ave, in 2004 the fair moved down to the Village (and sucked too). Last year it was called off. Anybody know if it is gone for good?

Pet Peeves? by William M. Klimon
Mine is folks trying to pass off nonfirsts as first editions of Thomas Merton's SEVEN STOREY MOUNTAIN, one of the key books in my collection. One problem is that there was a Taiwanese pirate edition in the 1960s that looks much like the first edition in the first state binding (see below). The...
