Default Wesleyan University Book Sale

Wesleyan University (Middletown, Connecticut) held its
annual book sale yesterday. They never have a lot of books
(the ad for yesterday said about 3,500) but the quality is
always good and you can find things that you will simply
never find anywhere else. For instance, if you wanted an
Urdu-English Dictionary, or a multi-volume Sprach Brach
Haus, they had it.

While I did not get those, I did find a Henry James, The
Awkward Age (Heinemann 1899), not the first issue though -
that had ads at the back of the book [McBride].

Additionally, I got:

Jean Genet, Querelle (Grove Press, 1974), first printing,
with dust jacket;

Leon Trotsky, The History of the Russian Revolution [3 vols
in 1] (Simon & Schuster, 1937), 2nd printing, with rare dust
jacket, though the dj has definitely seen better days,

In French, I got three paperback volumes by Luce Irigaray:
Speculum de l' Autre Femme
Amante Marine
Ce Sexe Qui N'en Est Pas Un

In Spanish, (also paperback)
Jose Donoso, Casa de Campo
Laura Esquivel, Malinche
Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Vivir para Cantarla (uncorrected
proof for
1st US publication)

and others

In dem Lande der Pygmäen
gibt es keine Uniformen,
weder Abzeichen, noch irgend welche Normen,
Und Soldaten sind dort nicht zu sehen.

Siegfried von Vegesack, "Es gibt keine Uniformen"
from In dem Lande der Pygmäen
