The City Record and Boston News-Letter is clearing out its library and has found several books which may be of interest to our readers. If you would like more information, please email me and I can tell you a little more about condition, shipping costs, etc. The first two people to order three (3) books will receive a free copy of the 1975 edition of "Victorian Boston Today: Ten Walking Tours". Most of these books are out of print, a few very scarce. I also have a number of books that I haven't put up online yet. You can browse my library and if you see something of interest, email me and I will let you know if it is for sale.
