Again, check out our Antiquarian and Collectible section on eBay, there’s a lot more books and collections there, and no doubt a lot more to come! (NB: Since these are mostly weekly auctions, the above links may refer to an older listing that has ended. Fear not! We re-list regularly, just click on the link at the top of the auction page where it says something like “see re-listed item” until it gets to the latest listing.)
