Winter Clearance 2017


Welcome to our winter sale catalog, where you'll find bargains galore on books, CDs, DVDs, and more. Film buffs will be delighted to see biographies of Barbara Stanwyck and Mickey Rooney, and Anglophiles (who should watch for our Queen Victoria online forum, coming in early January) will be equally pleased with our selection of histories and novels about their favorite part of the world. Art aficionados are sure to find beautiful additions to their libraries at incredible prices, and if you need a laugh—and who doesn't?—we're delighted to offer Joan Rivers's debut comedy album on CD. We've even reduced some of our 2017 calendars to unbelievable prices—$2.98 or less. If you see items that you must have, please place your order quickly; many quantities are extremely limited. As always, thank you for your orders!
