Congratulations on your good fortune in finding such great ML items at bargain prices.  I share your delight because I recently found the Alcoa private printings and a great 1929 Gift Set Return of the Native in an excellent DJ at bargain prices.  I envy you your access to good book stores; here in upstate New York there are so few such stores and every year there are fewer.  It is amazing that there are still so many great ML itms out there just waiting for our discovery.  Enjoy your serendipity.

Hi all,

It is not often that one finds ML leatherette in jackets in a bookstore - found two yesterday
(Zuleika @$9 and Camille @$12 - Spring ’28 list) along with Snow’s Red Star Over China ($9). 
The Snow has 316 titles (not a first). I also have a Snow with 322 titles (so there were at least
three printings of this title).

Also, recently bought a copy of Little Women from ABE: $40 (which is as cheap as I have ever 
seen one). See the attached photo.

Earlier in the week, at Half-Price-Books, a Giant buckram, Studs Lonigan, in VG condition ($7)
along with a half dozen nice #8 bindings in jackets, all titles missing from my collection, for 
$5 each.

The Beerbohm Zuleika Dobson (in image) has a jacket with a fall 1927 list. Thus Scot can update 
the Beerbohm jackets page (currently this jacket is listed as 1926).
