My Weekly Score: Irving Books

Things have been a little crazy around here lately, so I’m sorry for the gaps in our regular posting. I’m trying to stay on top of it, but I have to make sure I put the eBay store first. That’s the money maker after all. 😉

Also, to all my blogging friends: I’m not ignoring you! I haven’t been able to get into my blog e-mail for a few weeks. For some reason it just won’t let me log in. As soon as it’s up, though, rest assured I’ll make the rounds. I might just be a tad behind for a while, though.

But anyway, I promised two My Weekly Score posts this week, and here’s the first one. This is all about a set of books we sold by Washington Irving.

There are eight of them total, and they all seem to be from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. The titles included The Alhambra, Conquest of Granada, Conquest of Spain, Spanish Voyages; Tales of a Traveller, Bracebridge Hall, Abbotsford, Wolfert’s Roost; The Life and Voyages of Columbus; Life of Washington I-II; Life of Washington III-IV; Astoria, Capt. Bonneville, Salmagundi; Mahomet, Goldsmith, Moorish Chronicles; Sketch Book, Crayon Papers, Knickerbocker, Tour of the Prairies

The books did have some damage, which you can see in the pictures, but nothing that made them unreadable. We picked these up for just a few dollars and sold them for…

…$70! Not bad. 😀

Have you had any luck buying, selling, or collecting vintage books?
