Due to my mother's recent passing; I have a number of books published pre-ISBN era (1950's& 1960's).  Honestly; I even have some 1930's  --- anyone know if those are considered antiques???

I'm listing the 1950's & 1960's below.  I've noticed some of these are wishlisted but due to no ISBN numbers I didn't want to post the normal route because I wasn't sure if it would be an exact match.

1 credit each: Hardbacks:  most have yellowing of the very edges of the pages; I would imagine due to their age; none have dust jackets; but none are cleaved or cracked -- look pretty good for their age!

1951 - From Here to Eternty by James Jones

1953 - Desiree by Annemarie Selinko

1953 - A Sunset Touch by Howard Spring

1961 - The Carpetbaggers by Harold Robbins

1963 - No Adam in Eden by Grace Metalious

1966 - Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann

2-for-1 credit: Paperbacks:  all have been read.  All appear more yellowed for the pages.  Again, don't look half bad for their age. Listed by copyright years:

1948 - Never Love a Stranger by Harold Robbins

1949 - The Dream Merchants by Harold Robbins

1951 - A Stone for Danny Fisher by Harold Robbins

1954 - I'll Cry Tomorrow by Lillian Roth

1955 - 79 Park Avenue by Harold Robbins

1956 - Peyton Place by Grace Metalious

1959 - My Story by Mary Astor

1960 - Ourselves to Know by John O'Hara

1962 - Where Love has Gone by Harold Robbins

1964 - Harlow an intimate biography by Irving Shulman

1964 - The Girl from Peyton Place by George Metalious and June O'Shea

1965 - In Cold Blood by Truman Capote

1965 - The Lockwood Concern by John O'Hara

1966 - The Adventurers by Harold Robbins

1968 - Airport by Arthur Hailey

1969 - The Love Machine by Jacqueline Susann

1970 - Love Story by Erich Segal

1971 - The Betsy by Harold Robbins

Thanks,  Irene
