Initial bids have not yet been set, but expect them to be CHEAP. We will have Fedex forms available so that you can arrange for shipping of your books home to you, or we can invoice you for book-rate USPS shipping, if you prefer.

We will only be exhibiting one volume each of the multivolume sets. All the sets are ex-lib (DICTIONARY DEPARTMENT marking on spines) but in good condition (The American Dictionary and Cyclopedia being an exception -- it's missing covers and is in sad disrepair).

If you have questions about individual volumes, please leave them in the comments, or email. I'll answer as soon as I can.

If you cannot attend the banquet but wish to bid, find yourself a proxy.

All proceeds will benefit the DSNA.
