Take a peek at these rare finds and come back to visit this page each month as we spotlight more new (and old) rare finds from the nooks and crannies of our bookstores.

Farewell, My Lovely
A lovely copy of the author’s second book, his personal favorite. There is minor chipping to the spine of the price-clipped dust jacket, and a couple of small stains on the rear panel and a very small, faint stain on the front panel. A mystery high point in the colorful original dust jacket, from the library of producer/agent Charles K. Feldman! $2,000Contact the Buy Guy
