I would be very interested in your books, but as a high
school student with more Vernian enthusiasm than money, I am afraid that
I would not be able to make an acceptable offer for your collection.
However, I think that a list of titles and some pictures would be of
interest to other potential buyers here on the forum. I understand that
posting pictures here is difficult due to the size restrictions, but if
you could email them to me personally I can upload them to a directory
on one of my websites and post a link to it. Please let me know and I
would be glad to help. Have a great day, everyone!
