arethinn: glowing green spiral (Default)
My library has discarded its set of The Golden Bough by James Frazer. Unfortunately this is not a complete set and is missing the first two volumes (which I guess must have been an introductory volume and then Part I, since "volume 3" is labeled Part II). Don't believe the year in the call number; this edition is New York: St. Martin's Press, 1963 (some volumes say 1966).

I didn't take a picture of the inside of any of these, but the paper seems in decent condition, somewhat yellowed but not like the one below. Free of internal markings as far as I can see.

There is also this extremely condensed illustrated volume which seems to contain just a few selected chapters from the first two to four or so parts (Taboo and the Perils of the Soul, The Dying God) and some from the later Balder volumes (part VII). New York: Avenel Books, 1981; 407 pp; ISBN 0517336332. Considerably age-yellowed, as you can see in the second picture. The jacket art also seems fairly faded on the spine.

All have library processing: besides the labels you can easily see in the photos, there are call numbers written in pencil on endpapers or title page; plastic jacket covers that have been taped on (although I don't guarantee the tape is still holding on every corner); stamps on edges of pages; glued-in checkout card pockets or the remains thereof; and barcode stickers.

Free to anyone who wants them - pay shipping.
arethinn: triskele engraved on green stone-textured background (pagan (newgrange spirals))
We've discarded a copy of Graves' The White Goddess from my library. Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1966 Amended and enlarged edition, paperback, 1981 printing, this cover art. Good condition with usual sorts of library stamping, labels, etc.; no marks within the text that I saw. Would anyone be interested in having it? I would ask a few dollars to cover shipping.

eta: transaction pending.

I recently purchased this from xkcd, not realizing it was a two-pack including the 2007 version of the "Map of Online Communities" poster as well as the 2010 I was after. This means I now have an extra of the 2007, which I don't need. Sells there for $15 + $5 shipping; selling here for $10 shipping included. Completely new condition, although it seems to have gotten a little crunched when they were rolling it up and sticking it in the tube.
arethinn: glowing green spiral (general (fox))
We're trying to sell the upright piano we have that's hardly been touched (except for use as a bookshelf) in about fifteen years: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/msg/2097284851.html If you know anyone in the area who may be interested in such a thing, please pass them the link. (We'd be willing to take best offer, maybe even let it go for free if only someone will arrange to take it away, but we were hoping to recoup cost of the bookshelves we want to put in in its place.)
arethinn: Black stag on green ground, in front of a blue sky with geese and a stang with crossed arrows (pagan (nigel stang))
I accidentally bought a second copy of Orion Foxwood's "Faery Seership" CD at PantheaCon. Does anyone want it? Absolutely new, $15.

While we're on the topic, last year I managed to get a second copy of RJ Stewart's "Ballad Magic: Ancient British Magical Ballads". I don't know what I paid for it, but call it $10. Also new and unplayed (well, perhaps once -- I am not sure which of my two copies got played once and which got filed untouched as "well crap, I already have this").
