Quentin Blake. Very Good in Very Good jacket. Near Fine in Very Good Plus jacket The interior is pristine; the pages are clean and bright but have mellowed to a creamy yellow. The jacket has a wee bit of staining and a few tiny tears at the top, but is overall in extremely good condition. It is now covered by a mylar Brodart cover. A delightful copy.
Good. No Jacket. Hardcover. Very Good/None. First. An odd book of dreadful poems and wonderful illustrations. Self-published? I take it that the author was a leading citizen of Decatur. The boards are a bit stained, but the interior is excellent. The boards are now protected by a clear Mylar protector.

Description: Good in Good jacket. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine. First. Is historical science fiction with sex thrown in a known genre? This looks like a great way to absorb some Colonial history. The jacket has some wrinkling at the top of the spine and the magenta color has flaked off in spots where it is folded over in front, but in all major respects this is a very nice copy. A mylar Brodart protects the jacket. read more

Description: Good. No Jacket. Hard Cover. Good/None. First Thus. The original edition of Ballads was published by Ticknor and Fields in 1855.
