A Glimpse of the Future

Boatbuilding: A Complete Handbook of Wooden Boat Construction is a classic book for boat building enthusiasts. This copy looks unused, although the DJ shows a little shelf wear. It was published in 1980 and is one of many that Howard I. Chapelle published over the years of his life. It's $18.50 at Friends1.

Die Fledermaus by Johann Strauss II, as performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra and Chorus, directed by Herbert von Karajan with performances by Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Nicolai Gedda 
and Rita Streich. Recorded in 1955, and digitally remastered for this CD format. It's $17 at Friends1. The slipcase shows a little wear, but otherwise fine. This is one of the series "Great Performances of the Century."

Mickey Mouse: My Life in Pictures is a 1997 pictorial autobiography of Mickey Mouse. This copy is a First Edition, and appears to not have been used. It is $75 at Friends1. It is the perfect gift for a collector.

These three books represent the quality of the books we will offer in less than three weeks at the Semi-Annual Used Book Sale. The rare and wonderful books of the Specials Room are the ones you really need to come on Friends Night to see.  Once you've joined us for Thursday night, it will be difficult to resist returning each day as we restock regularly, right up to the very end. To join us on Friends Night, you will need to have a current membership.
