FS: Lots of books from an estate

I'm selling some things from the estate of a friend and this is the first installment of the books. There will be more to come, and I'll update this thread later this morning with price and condition, as I sort through them. From my first pass, it seems a lot of them were never read.

Excellence is 1st ed., 6th printing, 1977. $85 SOLD

Barth's book is copyrighted in the English edition in 1978. It was previously copyrighted in the German language edition in 1977. It doesn't specify the edition, it was printed in Great Britain. $35 SOLD

Both books have light wear to the dust covers and edges, what I would call shelf wear from sliding them in and out of bookshelves. Pages inside are crisp, I don't think he read either book.

UPfixen books, Volumes 1-11, plus Index, except Vol. 6. All have light shelf wear but appear to be unread. I suspect Vol. 6 is still in his house somewhere and was probably the only one he ever read, as it covered the era of his daily driver 911. $75 for the set; you also get volume 6, if I find it.

More, shortly...

The only two books that look like they might have been read:

101 Projects for the 911 $15
Porsche 911 Performance Handbook $35

Condition is still good, some light shelf wear.

The rest of these look like they were never read:

R&T on Porsche 1968-1971 $15
R&T on Porsche 1972-1975 $15
Porsche Sports Racers (550 spyder through the 917) $15
LeMans 1960-1969 $15
Porsche 911 Lentinello $15
Porsche Legends Leffingwell $35
Porsche 911 Paternie $15
Porsche 911 1977-1987 Brian Long $30

Condition is very good, some are as nice as you'd see in a bookstore shelf.

All are plus shipping, etc.

I forgot to mention above that I still have the copy of Paul Frere's book, the 911 Story. It's one of the 7th editions and I don't know how I missed it in the description, even though it was in the photo. $25, plus shipping, don't know if it was ever read. It's clean.


I'd like to sell all of these remaining books today. If you have any interest in them, let me know and let's see if we can work out a price that works for both of us.

Okay, I have one left. Today I noticed one other book in the picture that I never described. It's in the right front corner of the second photo, Porsche 911 1973-1977. It's a compilation of magazine articles about the 911 in that era by Brooklands Books, sort of like the R&T books, except that it includes the main European magazines. It includes articles on the RS 2.7, RS 3.0, early turbo, etc. It's like new, $15, plus postage.
