New Finds

Some great "new" books have come our way this week:

Africa Adorned by Angela Fisher, Abrams 1984, First Edition
Slightly worn copy in dust jacket of this gorgeous overview
of African jewelry, sculpture, masks and clothing, with glorious
color photos throughout. Over-sized. $110-

French and Spanish Painters, by James Stothert, Wm P Nimmo 1870.
Very good for age, steel engravings throughout; all tissue protection intact.
Artists include: Ingres, Prudhon, Velasquez, & Murillo. Ex-library, Western Reserve University.

Plus reading copies of some favorites: The Secret Life of Bees; #1 Ladies Detective Agency; Sternmen by Elizabeth Gilbert; I See You Everywhere and Three Junes by Julia Glass; We Were the Mulvaneys by Joyce Carol Oates; and the latest from Robert B. Parker, Tess Gerritsen and Patricia Cornwell (3 of my guilty pleasures!) $4-8 range each.

Shipping on most books is Media Mail which averages around $3.99 US. The larger volumes listed above would be more & would be priced according to buyer's location.
