Rare Book Liquidation Sale!

Greetings, readers!

It is my pleasure to inform you that I have the honor of handling one special aspect of the James A. Misko estate: rare books.

Sadly, I never had the opportunity to meet Misko — a prolific Anchorage author and co-founder of the Alaska Writers Guild, for which I am currently an officer — but I feel like I have been provided with unique insight into his life as an Alaskan author and bibliophile through his diverse collection.

This is where you come in.

If you have ever been interested in special and first editions of the works of famous American writers like Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, Joseph Conrad and Rudyard Kipling, or former presidents Ben Franklin, Woodrow Wilson, and Theodore and Franklin D. Roosevelt, for example, drop me a line! This is just a teaser of what the Misko estate has to offer, and I have been given permission to sell these books to avid readers and collectors in person as well as online. If you live in Alaska, particularly the Anchorage area, I would be glad to talk with you over the phone and via email about the items available. I still have dozens of books to go through, but if you’re looking for something in particular, let me know and I’ll tell you if I have access to it. If I do, feel free to make me an offer!

I am planning to list most of the titles on eBay (rather than AbeBooks or Biblio, which would cost me more money than I’m willing to spend up front), which you can find here (keep in mind that listing individual books takes a lot of time, and it’s bound to be months before everything I have access to has been listed). Most of the proceeds will be going to his surviving family, so if would like to provide a note of encouragement or thank you with your purchase, feel free.

In the mean time, please enjoy a few more shots from the treasure trove…
