Hi,
I have the following items for sale. Some have been offered before, but I have lowered the prices on those books. There are also a LOT of items that I have not listed before. The plan is to use any funds raised from the sale of these books to help fund some very cool Bottle of Smoke Press projects.. Email me at bill@bospress.net if interested.

"A" Items - Books
The Days Run Away Like Wild Horses Over the Hills. PB 1st. Black Sparrow Press 1969. Some grubbiness to the wrappers on this one. In general it is in nice shape, but the owner of this one read it and was not too bothered with it looking read. The cover has discoloration and a couple small stains. It is better than a reading copy, but not in great collectable condition. Still, if you don't want to drop $1200 on a signed first, this is a nice copy to have. $ 70 $60 SOLD

Fire Station. PB 2nd Printing. Capra Press 1970. Some general minor wear and some fool drew a couple "Kilroy was here drawings" in the book. I'll send this one out with the clamshell that houses it. $80 for the book and clamshell.

Post Office. PB 1st. Black Sparrow Press 1971. Some browning to the spine, wrappers, and the edges of the paper. This looks like they used a paper that was not acid free. Corners are pretty sharp, but with a bit of wear. A pretty copy of this scarce book. $175 $155 SOLD

Mockingbird Wish Me Luck. PB 1st. Black Sparrow Press 1972. Slight discoloration on this one. I think that is because of the paper being acidic or this being stored next to a book that was acidic. Very slight, but there. $100.00 $85.00 SOLD

If you mean clamshells, it is best that I do not take any on right now. They really set me back and I am not even keeping my head above water as it is. I hate to disappoint and promising anyone clamshells now will just disappoint.

Fire Station. PB 2nd Printing. Capra Press 1970. Some general minor wear and some fool drew a couple "Kilroy was here drawings" in the book.
No no no no no!!! If you want it to sell, you say that Bukowski probably drew a couple of "Kilroy was here" drawings in the book. And if it wasn't Bukowski who drew them, everyone knows that Bukowski LOVED "Kilroy was here" drawings, so it's the same thing. You should know that by now, Bill.

Ha! You are right. I also need to change the listing on those grubby paperbacks. I'm sure that they were Bukwoski's reading copies and the grime is his, wine stains, etc....

How are things with you?
