I have 7 books from a 12 volume set called the Stoddard Library published in 1910.  These books are “a thousand hours of entertainment with the world’s great writers” and compiled by John L. Stoddard.  Each book contains some of the writings from the world’s greatest writers along with a few color illustrations.


All the bindings are intact but some of the covers along the spine have detached and two have missing sections.  All the spines have been reinforced with tape.  Because of this I am offering all 7 books for only 2 credits.  I would love to get these books into the hands of someone who would love them.


Just send me a PM  if you would like them.


The seven books are:


Vol. II—writings from Bernardin through Caesar

Vol. IV—writings from Creasy though Egyptian Literature

Vol. V—writings from Eliot through Gladstone

Vol. VI—writings from Goethe through Herrick

Vol. VIII—writings from Kipling through McMaster

Vol. IX—writings from Mahaffy through Pliny

Vol. X—writings from Plutarch through Shakespeare
