Friends Bookstore News
Dear Bookstore Patrons,
We've just received a new supply of best sellers, including:
James Patterson, Christmas Wedding
Catherine Coulter, Prince of Ravenscar
Iris Johanson, Bonnie
Nicholas Sparks, The Best of Me
James Lee Burke, Feast Day of Fools
Danielle Steel, Hotel Vendome
John Sanford, Shock Wave
Also, we have a couple of book sets that are not on display, but may be of interest. We have a 20 volume Authors Digest, 1908 edition, a monogram edition certified in Vol. I to have been prepared for Henrietta M. Sample. The digest contains examples of the writings of many great authors. Comparable sets have dealer prices at various on-line sites of $125 to $185. We received this set through a donation from the family of Mary Anderson Tutwiler. We have priced the set for $45.00.
We also received a 10 volume set of Source Book Encyclopedia, dated 1931, which describes itself as "an international encyclopedic authority written from the New World Viewpoint prepared by over two hundred authorities in the fields of literature, art and science." This set is sold by the volume at prices ranging from $10 a volume to $14.50 a volume. We have priced our 10 volume set at $40.
We've attached a photo of these two sets for your evaluation. If you know of any collectors or bibliophiles who might be interested, please pass the word to them.
