I have 112 books that my great uncle gave me years ago.  I have used them as decoration and they look like they have never even been cracked open.  They are all from the 1960's.  All are trade size paperback and in excellent condition other than the yellowing of age.  They do have a small sticker with his name and address (which is still the same) on the inside first page.  I will be marking this out with a black marker for security reasons (I hope you will undersand).  I don't want to try and get the stickers off because I fear it will damage the book and it's not worth that to me.

It's just too hard, I think, to post them on my bookshelf so I have listed them below along with the year the book was published.  Post AND PM which ones you would like and I will get them pulled out, put aside, and marked off the list.

I have bolded every other book to try and make it a little easier to read!

  1. Man and Superman by George Bernard Shaw; 1965
  2. “Captains Courageous” by Rudyard Kipling; 1963
  3. Billy Budd and The Encantadas by Herman Melville; 1966
  4. Typee by Herman Melville; 1965
  5. The Year of the Whale by Victor B Scheffer; 1969
  6. The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens; 1966
  7. Gideon’s Month by J.J. Marric; 1958
  8. This Land is Mine by Wyatt Blassingame; 1959
  9. I am Curious (Yellow): The complete scenario of the film by Vilgot Sjoman with over 250 illustrations; 1968
  10. Monsieur Beaucaire: The Beautiful Lady by Booth Tarkington; 1968
  11. Blood by Leo Vroman; 1967 (Special Members’ Edition: Educational)
  12. Robinson Crusoe by Daniel DeFoe; 1963 (first few pages are coming unbound from spine)
  13. Democracy an American Novel by Henry Adams; 1968
  14. The Prairie by James Fenimore Cooper; 1964
  15. Pere Goriot by Honore de Balzac; 1965
  16. Season of Desire by Augusta Wallace Lyons; 1961
  17. Master Skylark by John Bennett; 1965
  18. Mother's Diary by Grace Jones; 1968 (Selected from the twelve hundred columns that appeared in The Manson Journal, Manson, Iowa from July 1944 to June 1967)

For the sake of sanity (and to make this post easier to read) I am going to erase all the books that are taken!  My list will be shrinking!  If you have any questions please PM me!
