We have just purchased a large eclectic 18th and 19th Century collection. Highlights include early 18th century imprints by Jonathon Swift, Alexander Pope, Oliver Goldsmith, Bound Years of Gentleman's Magazines and an interesting mix of 18th and 19th century travel & voyages, "Receipt Books", Ladies Journals, Philosophical musings, etc., etc. etc.. About 3/4 of the collection have condition faults which mean we plan to blow them out of here!!! OUR PRICES WILL BE INSANE!!! Act fast to enjoy these deals. I would prefer my in-store customers get the benefit of this purchase, but after 2 weeks I will start selling them online. ... See MoreSee Less
