Saturday Morning Book Hunt by Francis A. Miniter
It's all bad enough when you buy a book only to find you have it at home. But to buy a book at 1:00 pm that is (nearly) the same as one you bought at 8:30 am, AND which you also have at home. Makes me wonder if those pills for memory work. At least the 8:30 am copy was older than the other...

Nice Find by Pangarune Corner
Not a valuable book, but a very nice one... Joy Adamson's "The People of Kenya", for all of $2. Illustrated by her with drawings of many tribal costumes, pics as well. This one is a keeper. Willow

Collecting by Annibale
I have been buying selling and collecting since about 1960. Recently, since I am getting old and am not too well, I decided to sell of a lot of my stuff in various fields. It has been interesting to notice differences. On the West coast, auctions bring very little for rare childrens books of the...

Aesophine's fable by tontoko
In the old days, when men were allowed to have many wives, a middle-aged Man had one wife that was old and one that was young; each loved him very much, and desired to see him like herself. Now the Man began to dress up for going to the market with the young Wife, when she did not like his wrinkles...

Cold Comfort Farm by Ted Jones
My girlfriend just phoned and found reprints at Costco (For those who have not enjoyed the experience, it is a North American store that offers deep discounts on the toys and gustatory delights of affluent Americans.)

Jerry Morris reply to me some time ago. by Annibale
Sorry Jerry I don't get back here very often. Thank you for your nice note. Your collecting pattern, including bibliographies is sure to be one which could be helpful to many serious young collectors. You have so much easy information at home, I have seen you help the pros. I went to the Hyde...

Insurance for a book collection by LiRM
Our homeowners policy covers - as most homeowners policies do - coverage for loss of contents due to various events - fires, wind and water damage (think hurricanes - we live in FL), theft, etc. They do not cover the cost of what it would take for me to replace a good many of my books that I'm...

Resolving John Pelan by Shelf Space
Two questions: 1. You claim to follow ABAA book description guidelines. Please can you advise whether you are in fact a member of the ABAA (or have ever been)? 2. After seeking to imply that you had multiple copies of THE SORCERER'S CHESSMEN, you side-stepped my suggestion that we compare...

So far my efforts to track this down for my collection have been fruitless; perhaps someone here can help me. I'm looking for a specific German-English dictionary whose title I don't recall, and I'm looking for it because of a specific appendix regarding German maledicta. Let me explain... While...

Do Not Feed the Trolls by Scot Kamins
Everyone, I posted most of this as a response in another thread, but I thought it worthy of its own title. Feeding trolls keeps them alive. Do not feed them and they will shrivel up and die. It doesn't take much food to keep them alive. A single morsel tossed to them will breath life into...
