Around this time last year we came across a library having a bit of a clean out of duplicated titles. They’d set up a small tresle table outside and had a pile of books for sale at bargain prices (i.e. for free!).
Our policy is that it is always worth a look. If you don’t look, you don’t find. And sure enough there were a couple of titles of interest.
Well, it happened again – this time at a different library. Picking through about a hundred or so books we discovered a vintage paperback edition of John Lennon’s A Spaniard in the Works:
Initially released in 1965, this was a 1980 UK paperback re-press. The pages are a little browned with age, but otherwise this is in near mint condition:The $1.50 sticker on the front appears to be the original price here in Australia!
The other was the Paul McCartney children’s book High in the Clouds:
Written by McCartney and Philip Ardagh, and with delightful illustrations by Geoff Dunbar, this hardback edition was released in 2005 and is in excellent condition. This is a US first edition. The dust jacket is a little scuffed, but otherwise the book looks unused:(As usual click on images to see larger versions)
