    I'm cleaning out the workshop and pulled out a number of trapping, hunting, falconry, fishing and other outdoor books. Some of the most interesting are books published by A.R. Harding on trapping and other outdoor activities as early as 1913. Here's a list of what I have (although I forgot to put the two falconry books on it). I'm interested in them going to a new home rather than the dump, so asking only $1 apiece and the buyer pay shipping; the old trapping books would probably fit in a flat rate small box ($6 or so cost) and several would fit in a medium flat rate box (I think $13 or so). I'd take payment via PayPal. Send me a PM or email me at [email protected] if you're interested in any of them. The old ones vary in condition, some just about pristine, others with some water stains and some markup by a child (perhaps me 70 years ago.....). The old books do really make for a good read!!
