With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

1 Major, Henry Gay Philospher Bust Figurine and Paperweight
Very Good 
N.d., circa 1940s. Advertising giveaway (one assumes) of Monger Enterprises, Memphis TN. (This company's name, address and phone are printed on the marble base.) The figurine is a sculptural rendering of a popular comic strip character of the day. The base is 8 cm square, and the item is 9 cm from the bottom to the top of the "Gay Philosopher"'s rumpled hat. The sculpture appears to have been made of a composite material. Some of the colors have been lightly rubbed, but it remains a colorful figurine. Felt bottom to the base. 
Price: 65.00 USD
