The Complete Short Stories

By D. H. Lawrence

This is a very nice copy of Lawrence's Complete Short Stories Vol. 2, in the Viking Press edition, with the classic cover design. The binding is tight, the pages are clean/unmarked, just the typical but relatively small amount of wear you would expect from a paperback of this date. No creases or fading, only the slightest bit of staining on the page-ends. The accompanying photos are of the actual copy.

Beneath the Wheel

By Hermann Hesse

Mass-market Bantam pbk. edition, 1981 printing. The pages are rather yellowed, as is to be expected, but this is still a quite readable copy -- text is clean and unmarked. Minor crease down spine, a couple minor bumps; otherwise, aside from predictable paperback aging, a good copy. The real attraction of this series, in any case, is the William Edwards cover art. 216 pp. The accompanying photo is of the actual copy.
