22 pages; This sixteen page catalogue along with the six page supplement lists collectible books offered for sale by Barnes & Noble in 1939; it was mimeographed on legal size paper, stapled at upper left corner and folded in the middle. There is one tear to the first sheet and general age toning and dust soiling. A fascinating survivor of an earlier era of book collecting. Though in our current age of ever-declining prices for run-of-the-mill First Editions, there are a few titles on offer in this 1939 catalogue that have seen substantial appreciation. For example, Virginia Woolf's Orlando (Signed ltd., 1/800 copies) Mint - $10 ; James Joyce's Annalivia Plurabelle (Signed, Ltd.) - $3 ; Ernest Hemingway's Winner Take Nothing (Fine in DJ) - $2 ; Edith Wharton' Decoration of Houses (as new) - $7.50 ; F. Scott Fitzgerld's Tender is The Night (As New in DJ) - $2 ; etc.
