books for sale

 

2000 - 2002 editions - in exceptional cases a few years earlier

see 'books i hope to sell you for a black on white version of same (except next blurb):

the prices in the third columns were the new price at the time, .. second hand books are still half off i assume but non-profit community centres and libraries will get them anywhere from for an extra 15% off to free. The latter applies to places that manage to invite and convince me that they are a good home for the other half of my library also, which together with my manuscripts and many a rare gem i consider priceless).
