Offering these all 3 for 1. ALL are paperback, NONE have isbns. With the exception of a couple, all are in great older paperback condtion. Pm me with your 3 choices, post them here as well,  and I will delete them after you give 1 credit.

Answer to a question of what do I mean by "great older paperback condition":
By this, I mean, these predate ISBN numbers. Most appear to have never been read. But paper yellows with age, so SOME of them are a bit yellowed on the edges, all have tight bindings and pages.  I got these from my aunt, a retired english teacher and they are from her personal library. I don't have time to measure them all and hand add data for them so I am offering them as a deal here. HTH:)
