JERRY'S USED BOOKS

USED BOOKS OF EVERY DISCRIPTION
MORE ADDED AUGUST 28, 2013

NEW ADDITIONS ARE AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE.

  As you may well be aware I have a collecting fetish. This fetish knows no category, bounds nor limits but for some time now books have been the dominant species of my collecting. Their forage has grown scarce and they have begun fighting amongst themselves - so in accordance with the laws of nature it is time to thin the herd. My books are simply over flowing my office, study and various other nooks and crannies of my home. Since my fear of being crushed under a pile of poorly stacked volumes of Bruce Canton is greater than my desire to keep my eclectic pounds of parchment I have decided to offer a few of them for sale. I hope you can find something here that you will enjoy. Books are one of the few things I don't mind passing on as long as they are going to a good home. You will give them a good home will you not?

  There is no rhyme nor reason to the way I have them listed. You will find a Civil War era book and listed next will be a World War II followed by a copy of Mad Magazine. There is only one page of used books, one long - long - long page. So scroll till your hearts content. Should you have a question about one of the books please email me, I will be happy to answer any and all.



SOME BOOKS HERE ARE LISTED AS "FREE". PLEASE TAKE ONLY ONE FREE BOOK PER ORDER. IF YOU ORDER AGAIN NEXT WEEK - TAKE ANOTHER BOOK.

CIVIL WAR GHOST
TIME LIFE SERIES

  Softcover, no dust jacket, 1991 printing. It seems to me that either you like Ghost Stories or you don't. I'm find myself in the "do" category and will often read even a bad ghost story, knowing that it's bad after just a few page. This book is a collection of short stories and I'd rate it "not too bad", I even re-read a few of the stories. I can't say that I've re-watched any of the movies I've seen in the last few years. The Academy Awards should start a new category "Sucked the Least". Anyway this is a fun read, you'll enjoy it. 201 pages. Very Good condition.

Example; Questions 347 - Before shaking grates or dumping ash pan what should be observed. My answer; Make sure her husband is out of town! He's made some notes on the blank pages, who owes him $ etc. Overall the pages are very clean, just a few small notes her and there. Good condition.

MOTORS 1960 "TRUCK EDITION"

  When I was a kid this book was the top of the line in mechanical self instruction. If you could not do it from this book you had to go find an older mechanic and beg him to show you how. Every service station and garage worth their salt had this book (and every edition they could buy) on the shelf. This is the very hard to find "TRUCK" edition and contains all of the information needed to work on any truck motor gas or diesel built between 1952 and 1960. This book deals with damn near every aspect of the vehicle, Not Just the Motor! Even those new fangled automatic transmissions. (they'll never catch on)

VAMPIRES IN EUROPE 1929

  Book Review by Amelia Hill
  The Vampire in Europe is Montague Summers's 1929 follow-up to The Vampire: His Kith and Kin. While the latter work has a broad range of subjects - including what vampires are, how to kill them, and an extensive history of vampire fiction - The Vampire in Europe concentrates on vampire legends in ancient Greece and Rome, England and Ireland, modern Greece, and Eastern Europe.

  It is important to realize, before reading his works, that Summers is not merely interested in the vampire as a legend. "That a large number of cases of vampirism must be accounted certain only the most prejudiced will deny," he writes in his introduction. He was ordained a deacon in the Church of England and shortly thereafter converted to Catholicism and began writing about the occult from a Catholic (if unorthodox) perspective. In addition to The Vampire: His Kith and Kin and The Vampire in Europe, he published two books on witchcraft, as well as the first English translation of the Malleus Maleficarum (1928), and "The Werewolf" (1933). He believed that such creatures were the work of the devil and strongly advocated the reinstatement of the death penalty for witches.

  The Vampire in Europe is meticulously researched, including hundreds of footnotes and quoted passages (most given without English translations, which is downright frustrating for a reader not familiar with Latin, German, Italian, and several versions of Greek). Despite this fact (or perhaps because of it), the book often reads like the ravings of a mad professor. Summers includes unsubstantiated anecdotes, long passages of translation, and even an entire chapter of Varney the Vampire, whenever it seems to occur to him and not in any sort of organized fashion. He rambles from one example to another until the reader loses track of the subject, with some material so off-topic that it seems suited for entirely different chapters, and ends abruptly without much of an attempt to tie the disparate legends together.

  Still, if one can manage to plod through the more awkward parts of Summers's writing style, The Vampire in Europe is an abundant resource for those interested in the Occult, European folklore, or the history of vampire legends. Lovers of vampire fiction should read this book, as well as The Vampire: His Kith and Kin (especially the last chapter, "The Vampire in Literature"), to learn about the vampire legend before he became the star of the paranormal romances flooding the market today-and writers, to pick up ideas for how to make your vampires stand out from the crowd. (Did you know, for example, that according to some Eastern European legends a human can protect themselves by tossing a hawthorn branch or spilling grain, which the vampire will be compelled to pick up and thus forget his prey?) One need not believe it all true, as did Montague Summers, in order to find The Vampire in Europe a fascinating study of folklore.

I HAVE THIS BOOK VERY UNDER PRICED! It is ex library and it's condition is a solid "Good" bordering on "Very Good".

  This 1854 Patent book is in good condition. You can see by the photo that there is a little damage to the spine but it detracts very little from the look or usefulness of this book. This is Vol. II which has all the drawings. It is very useful by itself but even more so when you find a copy of Vol. I which has the descriptions and the person's name and address who filed the patent request. I love having these books around, take a look at the monkey wrench in the top left hand corner of photo # 3. How many times have you heard people discuss whether that style was period correct or not? This book is full of "argument settlers". Every patent accepted for the year of 1854 will have it's official drawing in this book. From firearms to jewelry clips, Farm equipment to cannon it's all here.

ORACLES OF NOSTRADAMUS
1940 PRINTING

  This hard cover 1940 printing of the, "Oracles of Nostradamus" is in very good condition with the exception of a missing blank cover page. No information is lost, you may not have even noticed but I thought it best to point it out. As you can see from the photo the dust jacket is a little on the ruff side but I personally care little for dust jackets. This book is 366 pages in length, the writings of Nostradamus with translations/commentary/explanations by Charles Ward. Also included is a 1981 newspaper clipping regarding Nostradamus and predictions for WW III. Anyone can own a new copy of this book but having a 1940 edition, well that's a little more impressive.

THE SECOND WORLD WAR

  "The Second World War", by Winston Churchill and the editors of Time Life. Originally printed in 1960 this is of the second printing in 1966. It is the special edition for young readers, in 1960 that meant add more photos which is exactly what they did. It's the norm today but was quite exceptional for the time. The information, type and text are the same, typical Churchill. In my opinion that's a good thing. 384 pages, no dust jacket, some dirt on a few pages. Good overall condition, tight binding, no loose pages. This book is about 3 times the size of today's books from Time Life series.

  Army of the Potomac by Bruce Catton: Glory Road, Published 1952. In those critical months between the autumn of 1862 and midsummer of the following year, the eventual outcome of the Civil War was determined by the Army of the Potomac. After a bloody massacre at Fredericksburg, an aimless and muddy march up and sown the banks of the Rappahannock, and a catastrophe of confusion at Chancellorsville, this army took a firm stand on the hills of the west of a small Pennsylvania town called Gettysburg and finally turned the fortunes of war against the Confederacy.

Very good reading.

  Operation Torch, the Gamble to invade North Africa, by William B. Breuer, Illustrated with 70 photographs. "As desperate a venture as has ever been undertaken by any force in the world's history." General George S. Patton.
  The hastily mounted invasion of French Northwest Africa in November of 1942 was a remarkable gamble, exposing American inexperience - from President Roosevelt on down - when half trained men were pitted against Vichy France and didn't know whether to expect open arms or open fire. Based on first hand accounts. Damn good book.
