#1 Linda Carlton, Air Pilot  Published by Akron Saalfield 1931

The Linda Carlton series is one of the hardest series of which to collect a complete set. 

Linda Carlton receives a brand-new airplane from her father for her high school graduation.  Linda is thrilled, and immediately signs up for flight lessons.  Linda had hoped that Ted Mackay would be her instructor, but Mr. Carlton forbids Linda from having anything to do with him.  Mr. Carlton has had problems with Mackay's father, and is certain that the son is bad as well.

Hardcover with original jacket. Jacket is good but does show some staining on inside edges and a few very, very minor tears. Book is good but same staining that shows on jacket is on edge of front cover. Note leaves in the rear of book. This has pages that are toned and the first blank page shows some minor open tiny holes. Otherwise very good piece of literary history.

1945 BLONDIE, Papa Knows Best ~ Big Little Book BLB #1490

By Chic Young

Big (Better) Little Book BLB #1490 ..... Fun find from an estate but spent most of the last 60+ years in an old barn. There is some damage to the edges of covers and some discoloration. One illustration in
book has been colored with crayon. All others (and their are many) are clean and very nice.

Tight and intact but a little off kilter. Still a very fun collectible. See photos and email with any questions prior to purchase.
Thanks so much for looking.

Duncton Wood Hardcover – March, 1980 by William Horwood First Edition

The central focus of the Duncton series is the Stone, a fictitious mole religion based on the standing stones and stone circles of Britain. As such, the novels are predominantly set in and around locales known for their megaliths, such as Avebury and Rollright. The titular wood itself is fictional, inspired by Wittenham Clumps and Wytham Woods (both near Oxford where the author was living when he wrote the first book) and borrowing its name from a village in West Sussex.
