Have about fifty Giants in stock.
Titles such as the Boswell, Gibbon, Marx, Carlyle etc. sell well in Everyman's Library.
Due to he fact that they are small books. and have scholarly introductions. Again, I write about NON collectors


SPECIALIZE IN MODERN LIBRARY  
FOLIO SOCIETY OF LONDON
LOEB CLASSICAL LIBRARY
EVERYMAN'S  LIBRARY

Yes, it is very interesting.  Those of us who are collectors only have no way of knowing this type of information.

> Looking at my sales records for the past five years, my three big sellers to NON Modern Library collectors have been:

> 2.) 70.2

You have explained 200.3 before.  But 70.2 and 12.3?  I am very surprised at those.  I thought Scot was the last person to purchase a copy of 70.2 (in S.F. during 1993).

I would have expected 204.1 (or D4 if you prefer) to be at the top of the list.  It is the best ML title.

Do you have many of the old Giants to sell?  In other words, do you hardly ever sell them because you don't have many to sell?
