And just about everything in there I've bought at local used book stores over the past 2-3 years in mint condition, often for no more than $7.  Ditto on that "is that all?" thought, ;)

I hate it when these large collections fail to mention the condition of the items! How can anyone attach a value to these things if we don't know the condition.

I hate it when the lister does not know how to, or does not use the <br> tag so it is easy to scan the list of items being auctioned in large lots.



I am too lazy nowdays to read a paragraph that long just to see if there is a hidden treasure.

yes I must admit to that as well, can't be bothered scanning through the whole lot when they are listed like this, all nice laid out shows some efforft on the sellers part...

One of the main reasons I more or less stopped buying huge lots was condition...  paid too much only to get a ton of stuff that was incomplete, reeked of mildew, scribbled on, etc.  Too many people selling lots like these don't know jack about collecting, and can't be arsed to go through EVERY book and comment on it.  Granted, I've also got a few "I can't believe its this old and in this condition" lots too.

I don't know.  It didn't take me too long to look through the list.  I reckon there must be upwards of 100 items there, so $500 doesn't seem too bad.  The condition doesn't look too grim either, but an email requesting a bit more information couldn't hurt...
