Alcuin Book Sale Fundraiser

The Alcuin Society is pleased to present a special online book sale of fine hardcover editions from The Folio Society. The Folio Society has been publishing beautiful editions of classic titles since 1947. Also included in this sale are 7 leather-bound books from the Franklin Library, from the late 1970s.

Almost all books in this sale are priced at a very reasonable $20 each, with a few titles marked down to $10, and a few more marked up to $30 for books in like new condition or $40 for double volume titles. All titles have been donated from a private collection and most books will have a small inscription of the owner's name & date of purchase inside the front cover, beyond which they are in very good overall condition. Books noted "as new" are unread and without inscription. Thanks Nick for the generous donation!

The proceeds from this sale will go to support The Alcuin Fund and the Alcuin Society's continuing efforts in the promotion of the Canadian book arts scene.

Please take a look at the list of titles offered for sale in this shared Google document:

All book titles are available immediately, with the remaining titles for sale at our upcoming Wayzgoose event at Vancouver's Library Square on Saturday, October 22, 2011.

Email us to request a title, and thereafter the titles will be marked on the list as SOLD.

Local pickup of the books can be arranged, they can be reserved for pickup at our Wayzgoose event, or if necessary, each book can be mailed for a small fee of $5, slightly more for the heavier books and sets.

Happy book hunting!
