In case you haven’t noticed, I have a weakness for books. I care about most all of the books I sell but these 3 are special. The obvious effort and attention to detail that the author and publisher have taken with their publishing is remarkable.
The books are in pretty much like new condition. They are with a trusted consignor to my site; he will ship from Europe and my usual guarantee applies. 19 pounds, 4 ounces. $1,425.
