A Book Auction in Maine August 16th


One of many interesting items

Each Auction lot buys in at $25.00 with ABSOLUTELY NO ADDITIONAL RESERVES.

Book dealers, collectors, e-Bayers, and interior decorators will decidedly profit from personal attendance. Many lots unexamined for the presence of signatures, laid-in material and the like. This will be a fast-moving sale of more than 450 lots to be concluded by 6:30 PM. Catered, air-conditioned. Shipping available at buyer’s expense.

Enough said.  It’s an interesting sale, a time capsule of bookselling forty years ago.
