For charity, but I'm sure cheap: *every* Wodehouse novel/story+Wodehousiana

Some first and England early editions. A bunch of American first editions.

Close friend died, I inherited the collection. I snarfed a few, but the hed here is accurate. Even the old time school/cricket stories, which are lousy. Even, I think, all his scripts and lyrics for his musicals.

I don't want to do a private sale, craigslist, whatever. Hate to break it up. Decided with widow to donate to a nearby charity, where I hope someone scoops it up to give the greatest gift ever, or just put in a bathtub and roll around on it.

It will go to a nearby charity--Housing Works, I think--*THIS SATURDAY IN DOWNTOWN MANHATTAN.*

PM me and we'll meet up.


ETA: First time in my history on the net I've used all caps, even in jest. Yay!

Do you/she still have these? Are you willing to ship and donate the proceeds instead?
