Are you looking for a specific number or book? Maybe you have a book someone is looking for... post it here! If you'd like to advertize your own ebay listings here as well that would be fine, just don't spam the boards.

Carrie 1st VF/NF & The Stand 1st VF/F must sell by Monday

Post by MARKASTZM » Fri Jan 11, 2013 9:43 am

The following is a list of the books I have available for sale. They are all in never read, new or nearly new condition. I will include pics of any damage or imperfections that i am able to determine, as well as notes on identifying characteristics. All are regular US editions and have been stored in a glass door bookcase since received in year of publication .
I am taking them to a rare book store today and will sell them if they offer a fair wholesale price which I consider to be about half of retail.

Carrie-book in new unread condition with one minor 1/16inch lower corner tear in dust jacket.

The Stand -book in new unread condition with only minor decrease in crispness in portion of parts of the bottom edge of dust jacket, no tears.

I would be happy to take any offers now or call anyone who might be interested once store makes their final offer but before I finalize the deal. _Please call me at 813 454 4727 asap and provide a contact phone number. I will happily provide good photos to document the condition and then make the sale through ebay or similar method. All of these books were purchased for me by my grand mother about the time of publication, and she also bought me duplicate copies in paperback when available and those are the ones that got read.

Anyone wanna make a guess at what I will be offered at Bookwise in Boca Raton in FL if they make an offer at all. Am I realistic in thinking 600 for carrie and 500 for the stand, or will i be surprised by a higher offer. I will let you regulars know the result.

After a few days of research online and calling specialist bookstores and brick and mortar auction houses I am very happy to have copies of Carrie and The Stand in such excellent condition. My TAKE(not asking) prices for these two are net $950 for Carrie and net $450 for The Stand, purchaser to pay shipping and insurance. I can accept payment by credit card through paypal.
If someone purchases them both I'll knock a hundred of the pair.
I have pics available that I have already sent out to a few people.
Also, I do still wish to sell the entire list of volumes in my initial posting and I am willing to make deals. I am just not going to play nickel and dime games with the two gems that I do have.
