FS book swap

Muokkaaja: toukokuu 30, 2017, 11:09 pm

Many of us acquire Folio Society books that are duplicates or unwanted.
The idea of this thread is to enable us to swap books between ourselves.
The rules are:-
- no money changes hands
- each party pays the postage for the book to the recipient.
- mention where you are located so the potential swappers have some idea of postage cost
- describe your book as carefully as possible
If you have a book that you wish to swap, list it below, stating what book you want to swap with, or better, a swap for any FS book you do not have.
If you see a swap in which you wish to participate, DO NOT clutter up the thread with details and exchanges of information and addresses, but send a personal message (PM) to the other party.
To send a PM, click on the other persons name at the head of the post (in this posting it would be my name, wcarter), then scroll down to the bottom of their profile page where you will find a text box (labelled “Post to comment wall”) in which you can type your message. You can mark the message as private to the recipient only if you wish.
When you receive a PM, a bright yellow box will appear beside you name on the top right of the Library thing home page. Click on the yellow box to read the message.
Happy swapping!

Good idea Warwick, what have you got?

Muokkaaja: toukokuu 30, 2017, 11:09 pm

I have the following books to swap:-
- A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (shrink wrapped in mint unread condition).
- Frankenstein (collectable, in fine condition, unread)
- Ovid : The Art of Love (good condition, spotting to covers, no bookmarks or annotations)
- The Mutiny and Piratical Seizure of HMS Bounty (book in very good condition with slight fading to page tops and spine, no bookplate or annotations; slipcase in average condition with scuff marks to corners and top edge unglued although intact).
I am happy to swap for any FS book in similar condition that I do not already own.
The FS books that I own can be seen at:-
then use search box to check if I own your potential swap book.
I am in Australia.

How could you possibly think that the culprit was miserable?
The choice of YRTTD is an act of humour at least!

All members of the group can when they desire change the image on a whim.

Nah, don't change it. It's probably the most appropriate image you could find: everybody's got one ... or four, or five.

toukokuu 31, 2017, 11:58 pm

And that is true, but I invite others to change as they see fit. But I like to see it up there every now and again; just a reminder that we don't take ourselves too seriously. :-)

Back to the OP.

I like the idea but would be slightly nervous posting anything, so would probably only do this with local Faddicts like Warwick, Shaliza, D-B, Wesley_Theobald etc

I did at the time :) I was only joking with Øyvind, knowing he was deceived by ironic comments on FSD into buying a copy.

kesäkuu 13, 2017, 2:23 pm

hello... in Canada and just received "The Surgeon of Crowthorne" as my mystery book. Already have it. Thoroughly enjoyed it but don't need2 copies. I'd love to trade for any of the following mystery books, "A Connecticut Yankee...", "Napoleon and Wellington" or "TRoy and its Remains". Looking forward to hearing from someone in Canada to make this trade.

kesäkuu 14, 2017, 9:42 am

Napoleon & Wellington for swap, preferably for A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. Within Europe, please. PM if agreeable.

kesäkuu 15, 2017, 5:51 am

Hi. "The Surgeon of Crowthorne" Austria. Would you swap?

kesäkuu 15, 2017, 8:23 am

I'd be very interested in The War At The End Of The World, and can trade a copy of Connecticut Yankee, albeit one that is not shrink-wrapped.

I live in the northeast US.

Muokkaaja: kesäkuu 17, 2017, 5:54 am

I have A Conneticut Yankee (new and sealed) that I'd dearly love to swap for Troy or Napoleon mystery books.

I need a copy of 'the Anglo Saxon Elegies' (1988) in order to complete the Folio fine press series. I have duplicates of several others in that series to swap, but have a number of other books I would be prepared to trade for it (any of several hundred in fact)

kesäkuu 21, 2017, 7:50 pm

If anyone is interested in the list I have above, minus Heart of Darkness PM me. I also have a sealed A Connecticut Yankee in King Authur's Court still in the shrinkwrap available as well.

Successfully swaped mystery books with leemeadowcroft. Worked out without any problems. Thanks.

kesäkuu 28, 2017, 10:04 am

Big Chief Elizabeth just received as my mystery book and looking for a more appreciative home. New condition in shrink wrap. Open to any offer for a swap volume (fiction or science topics preferred). U.K.

heinäkuu 6, 2017, 10:38 am

I just got another Mystery book and it's now my second copy of Big Chief Elizabeth. If somebody in Europe (preferrably Germany) is interested in swapping please PM me. I don't have a big collection of Folio Society books, so there is a good chance I don't have the book somebody wants to swap.

Muokkaaja: heinäkuu 6, 2017, 2:34 pm

I have the following titles for swap in Paris, France, OR in Oslo, Norway:

Durrell: Justine
Durrell: Clea
The war at the end of the world

Hi all,

Longtime lurker, first-time poster here. Back in the fall of 2015, while searching for some nice editions of two of my favorite British children's fantasies (The Midnight Folk and The Box of Delights), I discovered the Folio Society. I was thrilled to see them offered in such wonderful editions, and immediately ordered them. Since then, I've hemmed and hawed with the idea of purchasing more volumes from FS; it wasn't until my $40.00 voucher was due to expire that I ordered three subsequent books during the 1/2 price sale (The Ghost of Thomas Kempe, A Traveler in Time, and The Little White Horse). They just arrived this morning, along with my free mystery book, Barchester Towers (sealed).

I'm very interested in trading Barchester Towers for a different mystery book. I'd be most interested in The Owl Service. After that, I'm not sure, but preferably it would be another standalone children's novel. I'm in the USA (Massachusetts).

By the way, as a novice, I'm not sure how messaging works here. I hope it's an obvious signal/notification when I log in.

Anyway, it's nice to finally join here, and I look forward to a possible trade!

Thanks all,

Everyone who purchased a copy of Patrick Leigh Fermor's "Mani" and "Roumeli" was entered into a competition to win a set of two prints signed by the artist Katyuli Lloyd. I believe five sets were available to be won, but there may have been more.
I was fortunate enough to be one of the winners.
The prints are shown below, and are the covers of the two books, but without the lettering, signed and dated by Katyuli Lloyd. They are printed on heavy card and the total dimensions are 42.5x34 cm. while the coloured area is 34.5x24 cm.

My home has more than enough paintings hanging on its walls, and I have a cupboard full of original paintings that I do not have space to hang, so these prints (delightful as they are) are of no particular interest to me, and if kept, would join others in the cupboard.
I felt it would be a bit crass to sell them on eBay, but I thought that swapping them for a FS book would be appropriate.
I am in Australia, but happy to post world wide, if someone is willing to reciprocate by mailing me a FS book that I want.
Please send me a PM if you are interested.

heinäkuu 27, 2017, 9:09 am

Looking to trade with a fellow Canadian:

The Wizard of Oz (in shrink wrap or a copy with a bump, depending on the state of your book)
Hide and Seek (brand new, but no shrink wrap)

Interested in fiction or children's books.

heinäkuu 29, 2017, 6:40 am

>50 Marmalot:
I have "Surgeon of C." and "Big Chief Elizabeth" both shrink wrapped. Would love to trade either for "Hide and Seek". Also n Canada.

heinäkuu 30, 2017, 8:40 am

For trade in the U.S.:

I'd like to acquire a copy of the 2-volume set of 'War and Peace' with the Pevear and Volokhonsky translation published in 2014, with books and slipcase both in fine condition. For trade in return, I have a large number of FS books and other modern fine & private press books to select from. Please send a PM with your collecting interests and specific titles you may wish to acquire in return - I will almost certainly have something of interest for trade.

P.S. If you click on my name 'dlphcoracl' in the right-hand portion of the dark brown LibraryThing band at the top of the page, then click 'Collections: Your library' at the top of the next page, the specific titles in my collection of books will appear and can be viewed individually or by clicking 'see all tags' to search under a specific publisher.

elokuu 8, 2017, 11:53 am

Hey there,

This one is not a FS book, but I would like to maybe trade it for one. I have received two copies of As Others See Us, a previously unpublished story by O`Heny. The book was made by the Book Club of Texas. It's letterpress printed in more than one color and illustrated by Ben Sargent, a Pulitzer winning cartoonist. The limitation for the book was 500 copies. The cost for non-members is 75 dollars but here in Portugal with shipping it ended up costing me around 90 euros.

Here are some pictures of the book

elokuu 8, 2017, 12:22 pm

I live in Austin--Ben Sargent is a well-loved personality here (unfortunately, he retired from being an editorial cartoonist some time ago and the Austin American Statesman has been going downhill ever since). A beautiful book.

elokuu 8, 2017, 1:38 pm

Successfully swapped my second copy of Big Chief Elizabeth for >44 wdripp:'s Hide And Seek.

Also, I have a new still shrink-wrapped copy of The Worst Journey In The World for trade. I received a copy from my mother-in-law for Christmas, just a few days after I ordered a copy myself. As the copy I ordered was already shipped, I couldn't cancel the order. Interested in any unwanted Mystery book except A Connecticut Yankee, Big Chief Elizabeth, Napoleon & Wellington, and Hide And Seek, all of which I already own. If you have any non-Mystery still sealed Folio you'd like to trade, feel free to pm me as well, I have a very long wish list ) I will also consider a LEC.
I'm in the US.

I received as a gift the letterpress Henry VI, Part 1, with the annotated volume and clamshell. I already own a copy, so it has never left its cardboard box. I would like to trade for Antony & Cleopatra, Julius Caesar, or Richard II. I am in the USA.

After some delay, I received my final "mystery book" from the May-June sale. It is a Barchester Towers, which is unfortunate since I had purchased full-priced version not long ago. In any case, I have it for trade; I am in the USA.

syyskuu 11, 2017, 4:33 am

Through the mystery book raffle, I was blessed with three copies of "Big Chief Elizabeth" (...out of the three mystery books I received during the promotion). As I was able to gift one away, I am left with one spare that I would like to trade.

I do not own that many Folio books, so I am likely to be interested if you have one of the more recent Folio publications to offer in a trade.

I am located in France and the book is still in shrink wrap.

syyskuu 14, 2017, 8:38 am

I have currently the following FS books to swap:
- CARTER: The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories (Fine)
- Dickens in Europe (Fine)

Maybe to swap:
- HUXLEY: Brave New World, 2013 (Very Good, with some slight damages on the book cover. Internally bright and clean, tight binding)

NON-Folio to swap:
- HarperCollins Lord of the Rings 60th anniversary edition (Fine, with normal shelf wear on slipcase)
- a number of Penguin clothbound classics in different conditions (i.e. Alice in Wonderland, Dracula, A Tale of Two Cities, Picture of Dorian Gray, etc.)

I'd be happy the swap above books or a combination of books, books and money, etc. I am open for any suggestions but I am particularly looking for the following:
- SHELLEY: Frankenstein. The grey hardcover edition!
- STOKER: Dracula
- COLLLINS: The Woman in White
- VERNE: Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Seas
- Chinese Fairy Tales & Fantasies
- OWEN: War Poems
and many more!

I am based in Germany but regularly travelling to Leeds and Rome.

Muokkaaja: marraskuu 10, 2017, 10:51 am

I've got some duplicates available for trade before I put the "for sale" tag on them:

Impossible Journeys (shrink wrapped)
The Owl Service (shrink wrapped)
The Power and the Glory
Brighton Rock
Wuthering Heights
A Pocket Full of Rye
The Murder at the Vicarage

All in excellent condition, although the ones without shrink wrap have at least been browsed through, and there are minor marks on some of the slipcases but no dents/tears to them.

I am in the US.

marraskuu 10, 2017, 10:59 am

>39 edgeworn: Funny. I got Big Chief Elizabeth as a mystery book too. It must have been a clunker sales-wise. If I weren't so lazy, I'd offer it for swap or sale.

Yes, I have a Big Chief Elizabeth to swap. I am located in Oregon, USA.

marraskuu 11, 2017, 6:39 pm

Hi all,

I almost forgot about the Mystery Book that I received. It's Barchester Towers (still shrink wrapped). I'd be very interested in wdripp's Owl Service. I'm open to other offers (in particular some of the children's volumes that I don't have). I'm in the USA. Thanks all!

tammikuu 8, 2018, 9:20 am

This thread has been pretty quiet, but if anyone is interested I have the Liber Bestiarum LE that I want to swap. It is opened but just barely thumbed through. I was tempted during the LE sale and love the book. But I've decided that I want to backtrack on owning Limited Editions. I'm hoping there is someone with a wee stack of Folio editions that they would like to trade for this.

I had a couple great swaps work out here already and am hoping this can move to a new, loving home. I am located in Canada but can do shipping to and from the US.

Send me a private message if you are interested.

tammikuu 8, 2018, 6:36 pm

If anyone is interested in a trade for the GOYA I have the Faerie Queene available. It's a long ask but I had to try. Can't believe I missed out on the Goya.

tammikuu 11, 2018, 6:16 am

>71 xrayman: There is a copy for sale in the British museum, if you were thinking of visiting London at some point. I'm sure it would be possible to have it posted out (their p&p costs are reasonable). However it is a copy that has been on display so warrants a close inspection before purchase.

Muokkaaja: helmikuu 28, 2018, 11:30 am

I have the following for trade (preferably U.S.)

Dorothy L. Sayers Crime Collection (with slipcase)
-The Nine Tailors
-Gaudy Night
-Have his Carcase
-Murder Must Advertise
-Strong poison

Update: Traded the Sayers Box Set with Withawhy99.

-Herman Melville's Complete Shorter Fiction (sealed)

-A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (Folio Collectable, sealed)

-Eugene Onegin (sealed)

My most wanted titles are Rubaiyat, The Tale of Genji, War and Peace and, of course, the Fairy Books (except Pink and Green). Really missed out during the summer sale. I'm open to suggestions, of course.

tammikuu 11, 2018, 8:55 am

>73 withawhy99:
I have the Yellow Fairy Book for trade, maybe Red too, plus some others. I just bought two of your titles in this sale (Melville and Pushkin), unfortunately. I'd be interested in the Sayers. PM me if there's any chance you might want to work something out, otherwise I understand if you'd wait for other offers.

tammikuu 11, 2018, 9:34 am

I have a sealed Folio Diary 2018 which I have no use for. If anyone’s interested, please let me know. A small trade would be cool, otherwise it’s P&P costs only. I’ll send it anywhere, but let me know where to so I can look up postage costs and hopefully their not inhibitive. I live in The Netherlands, Europe.

tammikuu 11, 2018, 1:44 pm

I have unused FS diaries from 2012, 2013, 2104 and 2017 in perfect condition.
If anyone wants these, I am happy to swap them for just about anything.
If no-one is interested in the next couple of weeks, I will toss them.
I am in Australia.

helmikuu 27, 2018, 10:11 am

Keeps occurring to me, whenever I look at my bookshelves, that I have a FS set of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials that someone here would probably treasure much more than I do, but I never do anything about it.

So, finally, I'll offer it up for trade. PM me if you have anything interesting you'd let go for it - whether it's another FS or a different fine/private press. Worst I can do is say no.

Based in London and don't really want to go through the hassle of posting... Hopefully there are enough of you London based folk here!

Anybody interested in a swap for an unopened copy of Eugene Onegin? I'm in Canada and pretty open to options for trade.

maaliskuu 20, 2018, 8:59 pm

I’m interested in making a swap. I’d like to get a copy T. H. White’s The Once and Future King, Folio edition.

I don’t have a Folio edition that I’d like to swap, but I have several Heritage Press editions that I’d be willing to trade away. All are in almost new condition, with slip cases.

The ones I’d be willing to trade away area:
The Pilot by James Fenimore Cooper, published in 1968
Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert, published in 1950
Fathers & Sons by Ivan Turgenev, published in 1968

I’d be willing to trade away any two for The Once and Future King.

I live in the Los Angeles area.

maaliskuu 20, 2018, 11:03 pm

I'm looking for an LE Wind in the Willows and am willing to trade the similar LE Alice in Wonderland plus a Letterpress Henry V. I'm in the U.S.

Muokkaaja: maaliskuu 21, 2018, 10:57 am

>78 Lim_See_Min: I would also love the Pullman if still available. I'm at work and can't think off the top of my head what I might have to swap, other than the Myths and Legends of Russia. Is there anything you are particularly interested in?

maaliskuu 24, 2018, 11:31 am

>88 hiphopopotamus: Yes still available, mainly because it seems like there's less interest in London than in the books, but let me know what you have and if you're able to meet to swap. From Folio, I'd like anything that (a) I'm interested in; (b) I don't have; and (c) that I think I'd put a similar value on, but my interests are wide enough that those criteria still span a lot of topics and books. Things that jump to mind particularly are the boxset of classic philosophy, or the LE Alice underground. I already have most of the myths series that I am interested in so unfortunately they're probably out. But I'm also interested in any and all fine presses, so if you have any other interesting books I'm all ears.

I've been gifted an extra set of Folio's A Game of Thrones, which is unsealed but in mint condition (happy to send pictures). It is, of course, the first printing and comes with the pre-order bookmark and letter of acknowledgement. Book 1 has only been opened once and Book 2 has not been touched; the map has also been unfolded just once. If anyone is interested in trading for it, please PM me your collection that's up for trade and I'm sure we can work something out. :)

I realize the edition is widely available at the moment, but I figured this might be a cheaper or more convenient way for someone to acquire it.

toukokuu 15, 2020, 4:14 pm

First time poster and young collector from the Midwest here, though I'm not sure if "collector" applies to as small a collection as mine. I like well-made books, and so obviously Folio Society became my favorite publisher, however I'm on a very limited budget. I've fallen in love with Folio's edition of The Book of Psalms, but cannot justify the price of a new copy right now. I was hoping that somebody would have a used copy they would be willing to let go. I don't mind if it's scuffed up or worn. I'm afraid I don't have much to trade, only a copy of Holford-Stevens' Short History of Time. If anyone happens to be up for it, or can suggest some other arrangement, let me know. (if anyone has suggestions for something similar, (a book of the Psalms written in a poetic form) that I could find on the used market, I'd be happy to hear it as well)

Muokkaaja: toukokuu 15, 2020, 4:41 pm

I have a copy of The Name of the Rose up for trade.

>135 myriads:

Well, the Psalms volume sold out pretty quickly and is no longer available new. It sounds like you're very young and my best advice is to scrape money together for a year and go gung ho on a sale. Or, you should look through the prospectuses on the wiki and map out a collection that you'd like to have and begin purchasing used volumes on Ebay.

toukokuu 15, 2020, 9:08 pm

>135 myriads:, >137 Cubby.R.S.:

Don't forget to create a watched search in eBay so it emails you when a copy with the right details and price appears.

>137 Cubby.R.S.:
I have compiled a short list to save up for and most of them are older editions more readily found on the used market, though apparently that doesn't always means less expensive. I'll keep your suggestion to map out a collection in mind though, as opposed to just buying whatever strikes my fancy at the moment (which has led me to make purchases I regret in the past).

kesäkuu 5, 2020, 5:26 pm

I have The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov in very fine/as new condition (pictures available upon request) and would like to trade it for either Lolita or Finnegans Wake. All three copies are scarce and out of print so I think a 1-for-1 deal is fair, but I understand we all may value our collections at different rates so I'm open to bargaining; I am also open to other trades.

I haven't done this before so I'm not sure if someone has to vouch for me, but I have bought a book (the one up for trade, in fact) off of fellow Devotee and have had private conversations at length with other posters and have contributed minimally to this board, so hopefully I'm not a totally unknown quantity.

Please feel free to PM to talk further. Again, I am open to other titles (plus additional bargaining chips from either party, depending on the deal) as well from various publishers - I just happen to be keen on the two I mentioned.

kesäkuu 6, 2020, 1:10 am

I have received Hangman's Holiday, still sealed. If anyone has Reach for the Sky and would like to trade, please contact me. Also open to other books, but it would have to be something I don't already have.

Located in NSW Australia.

kesäkuu 6, 2020, 3:20 pm

>148 PatsChoice:

I would consider trading. I'm not so sure Finnegan's Wake is typically sold in the same bracket as the other two, but if you have Ulysses and are attempting to make the pair, then you might save me the burden. I'm hesitant because Finn Wake is a particularly interesting selection, but I also know what my search for Beowulf was like and finding Ulysses at a reasonable price may be too much for me to consider.

Do you have Ulysses?

>201 SirFolio16: If you are UK based then Oxfam have this listed - though without slipcase. I'm not familiar with 2nd hand prices for FS O'Brian so I don't know whether this is a fair pitch or not.

I've a Limited Edition copy of Ovid's Metamorphoses for trade if anybody in the UK is interested? Copy Number 1134, and in excellent condition. I bought it for my personal collection, grossly underestimating just how large it is!

I'd be interested in any of several LEs in exchange - Ulysses, chiefly, but Les Miserables, The Decameron and the Poetic Edda, too. Happy to take plenty of pics for anybody who's been after a copy. :)

Edit: Oh, Herodotus too! I want that LE even more than the others, how could I forget! :')

I have a spare copy of the Dostoyevsky collection and am looking to trade it. It’s in great condition. I don’t want to gauge someone on eBay but I’d like to put it in the hands of someone who will like it. I’m not looking to hit a home run here but am looking for any of the following titles.

Any of the James Bonds that aren’t goldfinger, from Russia with love or on her majesty’s secret service
The Road
Jurassic Park
Handmaids Tale

I’m open to other titles as well. I’m in western Canada if that makes a difference.

Hello FSD! I'm looking to reduce my library and I'm getting a little discouraged about what my local Bookshop does with my donations. Anyway, if you're in the US. I have:

Updated list and condition:


I'd like to trade all of these to the same home for something... 1984, Jekyll and Hyde...Message me if you have anything interesting.

Muokkaaja: huhtikuu 17, 2022, 3:43 am

Ill trade about anything for the Easton Press Landmark Thucydides or Herodotus.

I have a three volume le history of the crusades
The memoirs of a rennaisance pope

Notably I also have a Autographed copy of Gerald Ford's Memoir and Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner's wedding book.

They give me jack squat in store credit and sell the books at obnoxious prices that very few folks in my area would pay. I try to help them, and I still donate, but some of these books just deserve better.

huhtikuu 23, 2022, 4:10 am

Hello All,

I am thinking of thinning the shelves a bit, and have the following for trade:

Atwood, Margaret - The Handmaid's Tale
Aubrey, John - Brief Lives
Fitzgerald, F. Scott - The Great Gatsby
Giles, Milton - Big Chief Elizabeth
Greene, Graham - Brighton Rock
Joyce, James - Ulysses
O'Connor, Flannery - A Circle in the Fire and Other Stories
Remarque, Erich Maria - All Quiet on the Western Front
Tolkien, JRR - The Lord of the Rings

Fine Press Classics (Genesis, Song of Songs, The Book of Jonah) LE

And others which, after I finish reading, will probably list up.

Principally, I'm looking for works of ancient philosophy, along with Ancient Greek, Asian, or Latin American literature. If you have the latest Herodotus LE, I'm keenly interested--I regret not buying that one when I had the chance. I'm also open to other publishers, especially fine press ones.

I'm based in Japan, so shipping is an issue: regular airmail is still stopped for most countries. I'm a patient guy though and am willing to do a sea mail swap, or conversely, am happy to go private courier for a swap involving Ulysses or the LEs.

huhtikuu 23, 2022, 8:19 am

Hello all,

I'm based in the UK so to minimise cost would preferably trade within the UK but do reach out regardless if you have the following and happy to trade:

Beowulf (2010) - translated by Heaney
Lolita - Nabokov
The Exorcist - Blatty
Paradiso (illustrated by Di Paolo) - Dante
Alexander Trilogy - Renault
Gulag Archipelago - Solzhenitsyn
Pinocchio - Collodi

I have some sought-after FS books, fiction and non-fiction, such as:

Small Gods + Mort
Man in the High Castle
I, Robot
The Shining
Seven Gothic Tales
Chinese Fairy Tales and Fantasies
Treasure Island (2014)
Japanese Tales
Alice’s Adventure Underground facsimile LE
The Minoans + The Mycenaeans
Ancient philosophers set
Stalingrad + Berlin

Above are non-exhaustive examples at the top of my head but again please get in touch as I might have what you want.

syyskuu 17, 2022, 10:19 am

Might as well give it a shot since I know no local used bookstore will offer anything close to the value for Folios.

I have:
The Realms of the Unreal
The Body-Snatcher and Other Stories
The Scarlet Letter
Lives of the Later Ceasars
Great Short Stories (the collection with sections by countries)

I am looking for:
The Bloody Chamber
Kafka's Metamorphosis

If you have something more expensive, I would consider trading more than one of mine for your more expensive single one. I'm in the U.S.

syyskuu 20, 2022, 3:22 am

Figured this might be fun, not sure if anyone will bite. I'm based in Australia.

Have a copy of Ray Bradbury's Martian Chronicles by Folio Society I'm interested in moving on.

Interested in anything really within the wheelhouse of fantasy or science fiction.

syyskuu 21, 2022, 4:23 am

Hi GP, I’d be interested (and in Oz), but don’t think I have much that would interest you!


Drowned World
Gogol Collected Stories (it’s fantastical!)
Lives of the Later Caesars (also a little bit fantastical! ;-)

* Letterpress Tempest

I'm a longtime reader of the FSD forum, but new to posting, and am downsizing my collection of Folios. I have about two dozen limited editions such as the recent The Lord of the Rings, Poetic Edda, Aurora Australis, Night Thoughts, Hansel and Gretel, The Haunting of Hill House, and about 60 standard editions such as Paradise Lost (2 volume set with Fowler commentary), His Dark Materials, Egypt and the Holy Land. All books are as new.
I'm open to offers, but am looking for the Clarke, Leiber and Wagner Centipede Press books and a few Suntup editions. I strongly prefer in-person exchanges and am located in the southeastern USA. If you're interested, send me a message!

I am interested in deaccessioning the following massive tomes:

Surinam Album LE
Temple of Flora LE
Queen Mary Atlas LE
Night Thoughts LE
Gargantua & Pantagruel LE
Plants of the Americas LE

And also these large (but not gargantuan!) ones:

Nearly every title in the Letterpress Shakespeare LE set, (individually)
Just So Stories LE
The Wind in the Willows LE
Ulysses LE (2022 John Vernon Lord)

And finally, petite in comparison:

The Sound and the Fury LE (two-volumes)
Rob Roy LE

Because of their size, it would be best if you're in the US too. Would prefer fine press trades but am open to browsing.
