I'm reluctantly beginning to get rid of some of my better and more academic books.  So if you have an interest in Henry James,  the Civil war, slavery in colonial Williamsburg, or aspects of medieval history, please glance at my shelf.  Here are a few examples:

 

5 volume biography of Henry James by Edel

The Civil War Battlefield Guide by Kennedy  (this is definitive...describes every single battlefield with many maps)

The Negro in 18th Century Williamsburg

Slavery in the Colonial Chesapeake

Wayward Nuns in Medieval Literature

The Kindness of Strangers: The Abandonment of Children in Western Europe from Late Antiquite to the Renaissance.

Plus the usual fiction, fantasy, true crime,
