For Sale

Last updated 16 October 2023

I donate the vast majority of my excess books to Indy Reads, but I do offer specialized stuff (and CDs, which Indy Reads doesn't accept) here.

I hope the result is a win-win: You get what you want for less than you'd pay on (for example) Amazon Marketplace, while I net more because I'm not paying ridiculous listing fees.

My unsolicited advice is to avoid accumulating stuff, but if you see something irresistible, you can use the Comment Form to get in touch.

The Lepidoptera of New York and Neighboring States

There are two volumes that between them contain four parts, published by the Cornell University Agricultural Experiment Station. I'm offering them as a pair only; the price includes shipping via media mail. They appear to have been bound sometime after they were published, but appear to bear only personal names and a few stray marks. So they don't appear to be from an institutional library. Here's a summary description:

The first volume contains one part:

"Part 1", dated June 1923 and listed as "Memoir 68", covers "Primitive Forms, Microlepidoptera, Pyraloids, and Bombyces"

The second volume contains three parts:

"Part 2", dated June 1948, covers "Geometridae, Sphingidae, Notodontidae, and Lymantriidae"

"Part 3", dated July 1954, covers "Noctuidae"

"Part 4", dated September 1960, covers "Agaristidae through Nymphalidae, including Butterflies"

$50 for both

The Moths of America North of Mexico

Prices in this series include U.S. shipping via USPS Media Mail. Unless otherwise noted, volumes are in good or better condition. However, most of them are stamped "Dale H. Habeck" on the upper and lower edges.

I remember visiting, as a child, "The Wedge" property in South Carolina, which served as the epicenter of this remarkable project - especially the fully lit building with wide open windows that served as a giant moth trap. Simply amazing.

The Swallowtail - The Journal of the Butterfly and Moth Stamp Society

I have the following issues, listed below by "whole number", then volume number, then the issue number within that volume. The final issue is listed as whole number 31, and I have 31 numbers, but it's confusing because I don't have an issue labeled as whole number 18, while I have two very different numbers both dated September 1995. So I don't know whether this is a complete set. Some issues are comb-bound, others are three-hole punched. There's an image for the January 1990 issue, linked below. $50 for all of them.
