Maine Books: Bits and Bobs


Picked up these lovelies at a bookstore on the mainland. Unfortunately I don’t remember the name.
They are all mint and only $3 each.

According to the Bookselling in America and the World (which I also bought in Maine)
this Walpole was the number two bestseller in the U.S. in 1928.

The cover on this one drew me in.

And if I end up liking the other one by Sharp, I will be glad to have purchased this one as well.

This pile of Shute also came from the mainland bookseller I don’t remember.

This one was published in the U.S. to serve as an example no doubt.

Yes, that’s a pig.

    She's giving the pig a dose of what!? Your thumb is in the way, Thomas!

    Darlene: I think it may just say medicine, but I will have to check for you.

    Leaning: More finds to come soon.

    I read one Margery Sharp years ago (The Foolish Gentlewoman) and since then have been buying them when I see them cheaply – though not in such nice editions. If you're reading one, I might join in with you… I have both of these.
