Hi, Folks ... Mom said, 'I need to downsize'. Moving to assisted living, what she couldn't take included 8,000-plus books & records. A decade later, my upcountry barn is bursting. Books multiply as others recycle priorities. I now have 30,000 or more books looking for good homes, and my learning curve has been a roller coaster. I celebrate word-crafters, thought-tumblers, laughter ... the arts of communication at every turn. I preserve, protect, and share. I am also Hedgehog Publishing, 'Words & Pictures by & for Folks with Prickly Backs, Soft Bellies, & Small Brains'.

Great service. This was a book I remember my grandmother owning many years ago and I thought I'd never see one again. Delighted to find a 100 year old book in good condition at a reasonable cost.

positive comment by Moira C on Feb 21, 2015

Great Book & service !!

positive comment by Rob Y on Dec 14, 2014

The book is immaculate, especially given that it is a nearly fifty year old paperback. If you had three more, I would buy all of them - one for each of my siblings. Thanks!

I'm sorry, but I never received this book. Is there some way that you can look into this for me ? Thanks for any help.

Great delivery time and good packaging! This is a better copy than I had expected! Bigger size and more detail, and easier for these old eyes to peruse! Thanks so very much!!

positive comment by Michael F on Feb 22, 2014

arrived quickly, well packed and as described

positive comment by Jan K on Feb 20, 2014

I would argue if a book with this heavy age-toning should be described as near fine. But in fact all three originals by this author have this much toning, and apart from that the book is just fine. I am quite happy with the transaction.
