Available Titles (May 2013)

Prices in British Pounds. There is another list in Dollars. The lists are not created at the same time, so one will be more up-to-date than the other.

I have nothing for sale, but...

if you read a book by Constance Savery, liked it, and are looking for another, there is bad news and good news. The bad news is that the great majority of her books are out of print. The good news is that most can be purchased on the used book market, although certain titles are rather expensive. The list which follows will tell you what is available and approximately what you can expect to pay. I obtained the prices cited here from www.abebooks.com.uk. The list is typical, rather than exhaustive. Recall, too, that these are asking prices, rather than sale prices. For a more up-to-date quotation, you should go to a source such as AbeBooks, eBay or ZVAB (for German titles) and look for yourself.

I have sorted the listing into four broad categories: (1) original hardback editions with dust jackets; (2) original hardback editions without dust jackets; (3) ex-library hardbacks; and (4) paperbacks & reprints, including original editions of books issued as paperbacks. I also list how many copies of a particular title were on sale when I compiled or updated the list. This will give you an idea of the rarity of the item. If a title, such as Enemy Brothers, is still in print, than the listing does not include books available new. I have indented the titles of translations and new editions. Reprints with an identical text by the same publisher are not listed on a separate line from the original. Their prices are in the "Reprint or paperback" columns after the original title.
