A frined of mine has solicited my help in disposing of a deceased relatives' Harlequin collection... 20 years...6 books a month... some from highly sought after authors.  Are there any collectors here that might be interested in all or part of this collection?  If there is interest, I'll post authors, titles, volume numbers.

Thanks -

Any chance you could at least post the authors and let us decide from there?  Thanks.

The books are not in the same town with me, and at 6 books per month,  12 months a year,  for 20 years, this collector had a LOT of early Harlequins!  I'm planning a trip to evaluate the situation, over the weekend.

Without knowing if there is sufficient interest level to warrant the work involved, posting a complete list of authors, titles, and other information is rather cost prohibitive in the time department.

What I suggest is that if there are specific authors or titles you are looking for, please let me know, so that I can have a "cheat sheet" handy while going through them.

It is looking like those that I know someone has a particular interest in will be disposed of individually, while others will be put up here and elsewhere in lots, by volume number or author.

All comments and suggestions are welcome.  Any requests made by the time I leave will be given precedence as I cull through the books.

If there are any Betty Neels, Margaret Way, Diana Palmer or Penny Jordan I might be interested if I don't already have a particular book.

Thanks for the responses here, and in PM.  I'm making lists and notes, as I see posts here and read PMs.  Will be getting back to everyone when I have additional info.

Thanks to those who are expressing interest and listing specific requests here and in PM.  Where more than one person is seeking the same thing, I'm making a list for "first right of refusal".
