It's a two book slipcased set consisting of Treasure Island by R. L. Stevenson and Tales From King Arthur-This book was edited by Andrew Lang. The set was published in 2003 by Wordsworth Editions. When I went to the cashier she said "There wasn't a price?" and I replied that I hadn't seen a price. The cashier rang in a price, items were on sale today and I paid .81 cents for this nice two book slipcased set. When I made it home I cleaned the books and double checked the condition and I only see one minor scuff on the slipcase. BOO YEAH!!

    Thank you for the replies. I think I worry too much what others may think coupled with what Ron mentioned. I like to collect books for my enjoyment. Once I introduce the thought of buying books to fund my enjoyment of buying books or buying books for nothing but profit I start feeling differently about what I am doing. It changes the dynamic, and my joy, in book collecting.
    Completely agree. Keep it something you enjoy not a job.
