Some of these books are cheaply-moderately priced reading copies.
However, some of these books/records are collectibles--although they’re priced substantially below the current-on-offer market price

CASH ONLY. I won’t mail and unfortunately browsing is not an option--but I'll provide a thorough description of the condition of any title of interest. Please provide your want list in the body of your email, not as an attachment.

I will consider serious/reasonable offers for the whole lot, but don't ask me "what will you take?"

CRAIGSLIST'S CODED EMAIL RELAY SYSTEM CAN BE ERRATIC--sometimes failing to deliver emails back and forth (especially when involving a cellphone or an attached list)--IF YOU CONTACT ME AND DON'T HEAR BACK FROM ME WITHIN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME I DIDN'T GET IT, SO PLEASE TRY AGAIN, preferably via the ad rather than the already-established email thread
