Personal Library Book Sale

There is only one copy of each of the following books as they are from my personal library. Some are ex-library books with the usual library stamps and markings and some have my name stamped inside the front cover, but all are great for serious researchers who are not looking to just decorate their book shelves. They are priced below new-book price and some are currently out of print. Shipping is $3 no matter how many books you order. Email before ordering to make sure the books are still available.
