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.
