Hello, I'd like to clean out some older titles. Some of these unpostables may be more desired than those sitting around for...so long. One of the below for each item ordered if I listed it before May 1st, 2010 (the date is found just below the listing on a person's bookshelf):

Eric Hoffer--The True Believer, Paperback:  A few pages are loosening from the spine, though all present, no writing.  Multiply-Wish-Listed.

Umberto Eco--Foucault's Pendulum, Hardback: A handful of paragraphs marked. Some underlining. No dustcover.

Friedrich Nietzsche--Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Paperback: Very small amount of paragraph marking/underlining. Nice shape! (on many Wish Lists)

Rumi--Feeling The Shoulder of The Lion, Tradebound: (Persian poetry, translated by Coleman Barks.) Cover wear, and slight soapy scent to interior.

Marshall McLuhan & Quentin Fiore--The Medium is the Massage, Paperback, 1967:  Interior is great, but front cover is starting to separate from spine, though still well-attached.

Jared Lobdell, editor--A Tolkien Compass, Paperback.  1980 Ballantine edition (dif cover than shown if you type it in).  Interior's cool, but the cover has a short spine area tear and some corner creases. 

Max Ehrmann--Desiderata, Hardback: Some interior smudging. (also Wish Listed)

The Berkley Publishing Group--Previews of New Mysteries From Berkley Prime Crime (Sampler Anthology).  Perfect condition, but this is, for all practical purposes, an ARC:  "Contains uncorrected proofs".   Sample chapters from the following mystery authors: Peter Robinson, Miriam Grace Monfredo, Claudia Bishop, Susan Wittig Albert, Elizabeth Eyre, Stefanie Matteson, Margaret Frazer, Carole Berry.  All are from 1992, 1993 and 1994.  

Julius Fast--Body Language, Paperback: Tiny bit of gentle highlighting, interior, otherwise nice shape.

Simone de Beauvoir--The Second Sex, Paperback: Spine wear (peeling) and some interior underlining...not a lot.

Bruce Lancaster--Guns of Burgoyne, Hardback: Cover boards separating from spine, though still attached. 1939 First Edition of US Revolutionary War novel.

Edith Wharton--Ethan Frome, Tradebound: Used as a textbook with lots of underlining and highlighting. Joseph Bertelli cover painting.

Dewitt Miller--Reincarnation~The Whole Startling Story, Paperback: Spine very worn, cover just hanging on.

Eric Ambler--Journey Into Fear, Hardback: Water damage, mostly around the edges of the text. Does not cause the book to spread.

An Na--A Step From Heaven, Tradebound: Cover folds, spine starting to separate.

M. Scott Peck--The Road Less Traveled, Tradebound: Cover a bit creased, a tear and spine iffy. Interior looks ok.

Jan Struther--Mrs. Miniver, Hardback: Cover severely stained. Interior stained but not rippled.

Elizabeth Madox Roberts--The Great Meadow, Hardback: Front board taped inside. Cover blurb taped to endpaper. 1930 edition of a 1777-era Kentucky novel, with maps at front and back.

Aldous Huxley--Brave New World Revisited, Paperback: Spine separating and lots of underlining inside.

(No author)--Hocus Pocus Jumbo Show, Paperback: Cover worn. 60 sleight-of-hand magic tricks in Dutch, French, German, English, Swedish, Danish, and Italian with some illustrations at the end.

Mary Stewart--The Hollow Hills, Paperback: Spine peeling Fred Saberhagen & James V. Hart--Bram Stoker's Dracula, Paperback (the novel of the film, different than Stoker's novel): no front cover, otherwise new. Includes color stills from Coppola's movie.
