English, my interest is confined to those published in the U.S., Canada,
and Britain.... I always have plenty of duplicates to sell or trade, as I
usually buy entire collections and choose what I need for my personal
collection... I have only been online since December 1996, but have been
issuing regular catalogs since 1976."
