Bookish Remainders

Links and reviews coming soon (I was traveling this weekend) but in looking through the new catalog from Edward R. Hamilton (and if you don't get their catalogs, you probably should) I spotted a few remainders I thought I'd better point out to readers of this blog, since better prices for new copies of these are likely to be hard to come by:
