random old books

The saga continues. A month ago, we rescued 107 random old books from ending up in landfill, and I mean very old, very random books. Around 40 of them I've given to charity shops and sales, a dozen have made it onto our shelves, and the remaining 55 are for sale at amazon.co.uk. There are quite a few first editions of works by people who were probably famous in the 1920s but are now forgotten, and we've learned a lot just by looking up the names of authors like Lascelles Abercrombie, Francesca Alexander, Herbert Asquith (son of the prime minister), George Meredith, Alida Monro ...
Most amazingly, I only found 2 titles that didn't have an amazon.co.uk entry already.
