Subject: TOO MANY RED, GREEN, BLUE & PRETTY BOOKS


|
| A few years ago I inherited a large collection of early 19th Century women's
| fiction. Mostly popular fiction of the day. It's been sorted through and the
| interesting stuff pulled out. What I'm left with are so many unsortable
| books that I've decided the only way to deal with them was to sort them by
| their covers. Almost all these books have the embossed covers of the day
| look. The pretty ones have printed paper covers pasted down on the covers,
| or embossed and colored pictures, vines, faces, etc. Some of them are very
| cool. The cool piles all have neat stuff on the spines as well. The majority
| do not have dustjackets. So I have boxes of red books, green books, and blue
| books. I also have a few boxes of books that had fancier covers to them that
| I've pulled aside. These books are all for sale very cheap. If you have any
| burning desire to have a 5 foot shelf of red books (etc) let me know.
|
| At this point, these are little more than fodder or I would never encourage
| someone to alter a book. But here's your chance to do it. Create your own
| Humument. A buck or two apiece and shipping gets you a box. Minimum order
| one box. Inquiries welcome.
