Description de la librairie : My wife and I are inveterate book collectors who have accumulated large collections prior to our marriage. Cindy has collected modern firsts but has not listed many yet, and I have had a greater interest in Midwest history, sports, autographed editions, and non-fiction. We are now officially outta shelves and want to find good homes for some of our duplicates, tag-a-longs from buying collections, and other items that we have loved too much to put back. We are merely part-time book dealers with other full time work. We endeavor to grade strictly and describe accurately with true book collectors/lovers in mind. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may return it for any reason for a full refund, excluding return shipping. We are also interested in buying Midwest history, archaeology, Indian history, auto racing, and autographed presidential books and journals.
