I have 2 books that I cannot find any copies for sale on the internet:
1. BOLLING GAY GASTON BRAWLEY PAPER TRAIL WITH ALLIED FAMILIES - my copy is 71 out of 209 that were published and also has the outograph of one of the authorsDorothy Perry Brawley -- c1995 but no ISBN numbers, 644 pages. I cannot even find a copy listed as being in a library somewhere in the US.
There is one copy listed on eBay, but that is my copy.
2. Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors of the Revolutionary War - 17 volumes, former library books. I used to know of an antique book site that had a couple of these sets for sale, but I no longer can find that web site.
I would appreciate any information someone could give me ASAP. Thanks in advance.
Reference is made to this thread:
Who would participate in a Secret Santa gift exchange for the Booksellers Group?
I think Gismas might be open to playing the Ho, Ho, Ho man if we decide to do something.
I, for one, will agree to participate. Anyone else?
I think it might be fun to do a book exchange, where participants send a book off to an unknown giftee and receive a book from an unknown gifter. But that is not set in stone.
In the past, the Secret Santa handled all addresses and contacts, so you don't know who you wind up with until you get a name and address. Gis had a way of making it very fun!
For a book to be considered to have gilt features on the edge of the text block and on the covers does it have to be real gold?
Is there some trick to determine if it is real gold?
How is the gold applied? Do they just rub it on?
