Fabulous Classic Book Collection

I have had a superb collection of 50 Classic titles donated for our continuous Fundraising to help feed and keep our Street-Cats healthy.
All in 1st Class condition and I'm reluctant to sell them individually as we normally do from our bookshelves here, as it seems wrong to break up the set.

'Great Reads Collection', originally sold at £2.50 if bought with Daily Express.

Any fair offer would be really appreciated and they can be seen at my office.

Titles are,
1) Far from the Madding Crowd
2) Rebecca
3) Animal Farm
4) Murder on the Orient Express
5) War of the Worlds
6) Wuthering Heights
7) The Spy Who Came in from the Cold
8) About a Boy
9) Great Expectations
10) Farewell to Arms
11) A Room With a View
12) The Christmas Stories
13) Brideshead Revisited
14) Of Mice and Men
15) Pride and Prejudice
16) Sense and Sensibility
17) Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde
18) Jane Eyre
19) Lady Chatterley's Lover
20) The Moonstone
21) Oliver Twist
22) The Lost World
23) The Mayor of Casterbridge
24) Sons and Lovers
25) King Solomon's Mines
26) I Claudius
27) Persuasion
28) Little Women
29) Sonnets and Other Poetry
30) Moll Flanders
31) Moonfleet
32) Gulliver's Travels
33) The Turn of The Screw (and The Aspern Papers)
34) Silas Marner
35) The Woman in White
36) Emma
37) The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
38) Tess of the D'Urbervilles
39) The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
40) A Tale of Two Cities
41) Frankenstein
42) The Mill on The Floss
43) Around the World in Eighty Days
44) Women in Love
45) The Fall of The House of Usher
46) The Last of The Mohicans
47) The Picture of Dorian Gray
48) Dracula
49) Kidnapped
50) Nostromo

Re: Fabulous Classic Book Collection

Hi,
That's probably a brilliant idea but, to be honest, I wouldn't know where to start! Is there a book lover in or near Side with an EBAY account that could possibly help me out here?

Re: Fabulous Classic Book Collection

From experience I found you can't give books away, even offering delivery I got no takers

Re: Fabulous Classic Book Collection

Maybe we're just lucky down here in Side because both Ex-Pats and Tourists support us really well. People donate the books to us and we sell them out at 5T.L. all year round.
The cats come to our office to be fed, 'All inclusive at Kale Emlak', waiting outside for me in the morning for their breakfasts and returning anywhere between 4pm and 7pm for their evening meal.
I've lost count of the number of cats that we've sterilised but we must be doing something correctly because people often comment on how healthy the cats look.

I'm just reluctant to let these books go at 5T.L. each because it seems criminal to break up such a fabulous set. I'll be patient until they go to someone that will treasure them.

Re: Fabulous Classic Book Collection

You're doing sterling work with those cats and good to get as many sterilised as possible. We were in Kusadasi for the day last year and watched an elderly lady (Turkish) feeding between 20 - 50 cats. Good to see.

Re: Fabulous Classic Book Collection

I have an Ebay account Ann but to be honest it would not be worth doing because (A) You would have to photograph each and every book to put it on Ebay, (B) You would have to price each one individually, (C) You would have to put a description for each book, (D) You must have a price for each individual book, (D) You need to choose whether to sell each one as Buy It Now or on the Ebay Auction with a certain number of days to finalise the auction sale, (E) They all pay on Ebay via PayPal... do you have a PayPal account? As you can see, it would be a lot a lot of bother and not worth it. Why not go on Facebook to the Stuff For Sale In Antalya section? There you would get a good price and could simply copy and paste your original post above here. See you soon. x Angela x

Hi,

It's not a question of 'How much do I want' is it?

In my original post I said that any 'fair' offer would be acceptable so, if you wish to make an offer that you feel is fair, you can always PM me if you don't want to put it up openly on TLF.

50 Hard Back Classics, in perfect condition that cost £2.50 each originally.
They're not to be given away by any means because I owe it to the couple that so generously donated them, to wait for a true book lover to come along.

Re: Fabulous Classic Book Collection

I think you mean £2.50 not £250. I wasn't suggesting you give them away. I am out next month and am in Ilica so will come and see you if they are still available.
