Louis Proyect: The Unrepentant Marxist

Used book sale is OVER

Filed under: Uncategorized — louisproyect @ 7:46 pm

Sorry, I already sold the entire collection earlier in the day. I am leaving the link to my books up so people can get an idea of how much of a book junkie I was. 

Because I have begun to run out of space in my apartment and because I lack the time to read them even if I live to 120, I am selling a bunch of books listed in the spreadsheet linked to below:


The price in column 3 generally comes from the cover of the book and is included for reference more than anything else. As a rule of thumb, my price is half of the selling price for a used version of the book on Amazon.com. So, for example, I am selling Robert Caro’s “The Power Broker” (a biography of the weasel Robert Moses) for $4.25, while the Amazon.com used price for the same book is $8.50. All books are paperback, unless marked with an * in column 4.

Finally, I am more interested in making space in my apartment than making money. I am anxious to move the books and will be open to any reasonable offer. However, I am not interested in selling small quantities of books since I don’t have time to wrap packages up and run to the post office for 2 or 3 books. Ideally, I am looking for purchases $100 and up. Although I doubt anybody would want to take the entire inventory off my hands, I would be asking $1000 for all of them. Considering that the list price for that would be over $13,000, I think that is fairly reasonable.

There are no handling charges, just the postage it costs to mail the books.

Contact me at lnp3@panix.com with your bids and your questions.


  1. That is an absolutely awesome collection. There’s quite a few there that I have down on my ever-growing list (though as a university student I have no idea when I’ll have time to get them all read, lol)… I’ll definitely take a look =|.

    BTW Whereabouts in the world are you located? I’m in Canada, so chances are I’d get hard with shipping…

  2. Did you sell them to Bob Gould? It will be interesting to see how much he marks them up!
