THE AUCTION IS CLOSED.  Thanks for your bids!
….and look for the Pre-Raphaelite -
 - and Endicott West Farewell - Blow-Out(s)
is now here!

Thanks to your support and enthusiasm for the Endicott West retreat and author, artist & editor Terri Windling's prodigious library here, we're offering four more fabulous flash auction packages, hand-chosen by Terri herself: a Baker's Dozen in each of some pretty special volumes. These are the last of these sort of boxes; all that's left is Monday's Pre-Raphaelite blow-out, which will feature art books and even fabrics.  And then we're done.

Your purchases are helping us to move her most important books, papers and lifelong possessions to her home in the U.K. - and at the same time giving tremendous joy to know that a lifetime of careful book-collecting is going to people who will truly value its fruits.

Here are the new Boxes on offer.  What you see is what you'll get - the 13 books in each box - thanks to Terri's own beautiful photos (yes, shut up, I know they are much better than the ones I took for the last auction) :

1) Biographies box

2)  Native American Authors box
includes some rare and hard-to-find volumes

3)  Poetry-Lover's box

4)  Short Story Lover's box
Many of these are the books from which Terri selected stories for her ground-breaking Year's Best Fantasy & Horror series.

COMING ON MONDAY:
The Great Pre-Raphaelite Blow-Out, featuring
• William Morris Box  • Pre-Raphaelite Art Books Box w/Collectibles • Wm Morris/Liberty Print Quilting Fabrics Box
It's a beauty; all Pre-Raphaelite-lovers will want to know about this one!
That will be our final auction, and then we're done.

ETA:  One more to add: We just found a big stack of books by authors who have stayed here, signed to Endicott West!
Includes Emma Bull, Ellen Kushner, Charles Vess, Charles de Lint & more. Some first editions. This will go up next week. The perfect way to close out the Retreat, and give someone a little piece of its history.  Bidding will start over $100 on this and the Pre-Raph collectibles, so if your budget is tight, we suggest you try for the ones listed here.

Meanwhile, here we go:
