FS book swap

Folio Society devotees

Join LibraryThing to post.

Edited: May 30, 2017, 11:09pm Top

Many of us acquire Folio Society books that are duplicates or unwanted.
The idea of this thread is to enable us to swap books between ourselves.
The rules are:-
- no money changes hands
- each party pays the postage for the book to the recipient.
- mention where you are located so the potential swappers have some idea of postage cost
- describe your book as carefully as possible
If you have a book that you wish to swap, list it below, stating what book you want to swap with, or better, a swap for any FS book you do not have.
If you see a swap in which you wish to participate, DO NOT clutter up the thread with details and exchanges of information and addresses, but send a personal message (PM) to the other party.
To send a PM, click on the other persons name at the head of the post (in this posting it would be my name, wcarter), then scroll down to the bottom of their profile page where you will find a text box (labelled “Post to comment wall”) in which you can type your message. You can mark the message as private to the recipient only if you wish.
When you receive a PM, a bright yellow box will appear beside you name on the top right of the Library thing home page. Click on the yellow box to read the message.
Happy swapping!

Good idea Warwick, what have you got?

Edited: May 30, 2017, 11:09pm Top

I have the following books to swap:-
- A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (shrink wrapped in mint unread condition).
- Frankenstein (collectable, in fine condition, unread)
- Ovid : The Art of Love (good condition, spotting to covers, no bookmarks or annotations)
- The Mutiny and Piratical Seizure of HMS Bounty (book in very good condition with slight fading to page tops and spine, no bookplate or annotations; slipcase in average condition with scuff marks to corners and top edge unglued although intact).
I am happy to swap for any FS book in similar condition that I do not already own.
The FS books that I own can be seen at:-
then use search box to check if I own your potential swap book.
I am in Australia.

Hi all,

Longtime lurker, first-time poster here. Back in the fall of 2015, while searching for some nice editions of two of my favorite British children's fantasies (The Midnight Folk and The Box of Delights), I discovered the Folio Society. I was thrilled to see them offered in such wonderful editions, and immediately ordered them. Since then, I've hemmed and hawed with the idea of purchasing more volumes from FS; it wasn't until my $40.00 voucher was due to expire that I ordered three subsequent books during the 1/2 price sale (The Ghost of Thomas Kempe, A Traveler in Time, and The Little White Horse). They just arrived this morning, along with my free mystery book, Barchester Towers (sealed).

I'm very interested in trading Barchester Towers for a different mystery book. I'd be most interested in The Owl Service. After that, I'm not sure, but preferably it would be another standalone children's novel. I'm in the USA (Massachusetts).

By the way, as a novice, I'm not sure how messaging works here. I hope it's an obvious signal/notification when I log in.

Anyway, it's nice to finally join here, and I look forward to a possible trade!

Thanks all,

Everyone who purchased a copy of Patrick Leigh Fermor's "Mani" and "Roumeli" was entered into a competition to win a set of two prints signed by the artist Katyuli Lloyd. I believe five sets were available to be won, but there may have been more.
I was fortunate enough to be one of the winners.
The prints are shown below, and are the covers of the two books, but without the lettering, signed and dated by Katyuli Lloyd. They are printed on heavy card and the total dimensions are 42.5x34 cm. while the coloured area is 34.5x24 cm.

My home has more than enough paintings hanging on its walls, and I have a cupboard full of original paintings that I do not have space to hang, so these prints (delightful as they are) are of no particular interest to me, and if kept, would join others in the cupboard.
I felt it would be a bit crass to sell them on eBay, but I thought that swapping them for a FS book would be appropriate.
I am in Australia, but happy to post world wide, if someone is willing to reciprocate by mailing me a FS book that I want.
Please send me a PM if you are interested.

Looking to trade with a fellow Canadian:

The Wizard of Oz (in shrink wrap or a copy with a bump, depending on the state of your book)

For trade in the U.S.:

I'd like to acquire a copy of the 2-volume set of 'War and Peace' with the Pevear and Volokhonsky translation published in 2014, with books and slipcase both in fine condition. For trade in return, I have a large number of FS books and other modern fine & private press books to select from. Please send a PM with your collecting interests and specific titles you may wish to acquire in return - I will almost certainly have something of interest for trade.

P.S. If you click on my name 'dlphcoracl' in the right-hand portion of the dark brown LibraryThing band at the top of the page, then click 'Collections: Your library' at the top of the next page, the specific titles in my collection of books will appear and can be viewed individually or by clicking 'see all tags' to search under a specific publisher.

Hey there,

This one is not a FS book, but I would like to maybe trade it for one. I have received two copies of As Others See Us, a previously unpublished story by O`Heny. The book was made by the Book Club of Texas. It's letterpress printed in more than one color and illustrated by Ben Sargent, a Pulitzer winning cartoonist. The limitation for the book was 500 copies. The cost for non-members is 75 dollars but here in Portugal with shipping it ended up costing me around 90 euros.

Here are some pictures of the book

Aug 8, 2017, 12:22pm Top

I live in Austin--Ben Sargent is a well-loved personality here (unfortunately, he retired from being an editorial cartoonist some time ago and the Austin American Statesman has been going downhill ever since). A beautiful book.

Aug 8, 2017, 1:38pm Top

Successfully swapped my second copy of Big Chief Elizabeth for >44 wdripp:'s Hide And Seek.

Also, I have a new still shrink-wrapped copy of The Worst Journey In The World for trade. I received a copy from my mother-in-law for Christmas, just a few days after I ordered a copy myself. As the copy I ordered was already shipped, I couldn't cancel the order. Interested in any unwanted Mystery book except A Connecticut Yankee, Big Chief Elizabeth, Napoleon & Wellington, and Hide And Seek, all of which I already own. If you have any non-Mystery still sealed Folio you'd like to trade, feel free to pm me as well, I have a very long wish list ) I will also consider a LEC.

After some delay, I received my final "mystery book" from the May-June sale. It is a Barchester Towers, which is unfortunate since I had purchased full-priced version not long ago. In any case, I have it for trade; I am in the USA.

Sep 11, 2017, 4:33am Top

Through the mystery book raffle, I was blessed with three copies of "Big Chief Elizabeth" (...out of the three mystery books I received during the promotion). As I was able to gift one away, I am left with one spare that I would like to trade.

I do not own that many Folio books, so I am likely to be interested if you have one of the more recent Folio publications to offer in a trade.

I am located in France and the book is still in shrink wrap.

Sep 14, 2017, 8:38am Top

I have currently the following FS books to swap:
- CARTER: The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories (Fine)
- Dickens in Europe (Fine)

Maybe to swap:
- HUXLEY: Brave New World, 2013 (Very Good, with some slight damages on the book cover. Internally bright and clean, tight binding)

NON-Folio to swap:
- HarperCollins Lord of the Rings 60th anniversary edition (Fine, with normal shelf wear on slipcase)
- a number of Penguin clothbound classics in different conditions (i.e. Alice in Wonderland, Dracula, A Tale of Two Cities, Picture of Dorian Gray, etc.)

I'd be happy the swap above books or a combination of books, books and money, etc. I am open for any suggestions but I am particularly looking for the following:
- SHELLEY: Frankenstein. The grey hardcover edition!
- STOKER: Dracula
- COLLLINS: The Woman in White
- VERNE: Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Seas
- Chinese Fairy Tales & Fantasies
- OWEN: War Poems

This thread has been pretty quiet, but if anyone is interested I have the Liber Bestiarum LE that I want to swap. It is opened but just barely thumbed through. I was tempted during the LE sale and love the book. But I've decided that I want to backtrack on owning Limited Editions. I'm hoping there is someone with a wee stack of Folio editions that they would like to trade for this.

I had a couple great swaps work out here already and am hoping this can move to a new, loving home. I am located in Canada but can do shipping to and from the US.

Mar 20, 2018, 8:59pm Top

I’m interested in making a swap. I’d like to get a copy T. H. White’s The Once and Future King, Folio edition.

I don’t have a Folio edition that I’d like to swap, but I have several Heritage Press editions that I’d be willing to trade away. All are in almost new condition, with slip cases.

The ones I’d be willing to trade away area:
The Pilot by James Fenimore Cooper, published in 1968
Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert, published in 1950
Fathers & Sons by Ivan Turgenev, published in 1968

I’d be willing to trade away any two for The Once and Future King.

>78 Lim_See_Min: I would also love the Pullman if still available. I'm at work and can't think off the top of my head what I might have to swap, other than the Myths and Legends of Russia. Is there anything you are particularly interested in?

Mar 24, 2018, 11:31am Top

>88 hiphopopotamus: Yes still available, mainly because it seems like there's less interest in London than in the books, but let me know what you have and if you're able to meet to swap. From Folio, I'd like anything that (a) I'm interested in; (b) I don't have; and (c) that I think I'd put a similar value on, but my interests are wide enough that those criteria still span a lot of topics and books. Things that jump to mind particularly are the boxset of classic philosophy, or the LE Alice underground. I already have most of the myths series that I am interested in so unfortunately they're probably out. But I'm also interested in any and all fine presses, so if you have any other interesting books I'm all ears.

When you say the Pepys diaries..which one are you speaking of?

Will have to dig it out, but not the nice comprehensive one if that’s what you were hoping for.

Wanting to trade the Folio/Oxford Press of Much Ado About Nothing. Preferably with a different book in that series that I dont have already, but I'm open to other Folios. Im in the US. Please PM me. Thanks!

I am interested in trading my copy of The Vision of Piers Plowman, preferably to someone in the US. Would prefer something of similar (sale price) value, in the low 100s. Not sure what would interest me, but feel free to propose something.

If anyone is a Tolkien fan, I have an 11th impression Hobbit I would trade for a Folio mort. I don't have many folios of the Mort value, unfortunately.

Looking for (like many others) the Orange, Grey and Crimson Fairy books. My OCD needs me to complete the set.

I mostly collected the childrens books from Folio and am willing to part with pretty much any of them to complete it. If you have something in mind, PM me. I am located in Canada.

I am seeking a few of the Shakespeare Companions. Two Noble Kinsmen and Henry VI, Parts 1, 2, and 3. Have quite a few Folios I'd consider trading for them.

I'm located in the US.

I recently got several unnumbered letterpress Shakespeare volumes and ended up with duplicate Titus Andronicus. It is in fine condition, unnumbered, with no box or companion. Will swap with something in 100$ value range.
My wish list includes
The Folio Book of Children’s Poetry
Chinese Fairy Tales & Fantasies
The Sound and the Fury
Japanese Tales
East of Eden
Tolkien books
And the list go on, so open for any offers. US location preferred.

Not a swap but... I have a spare copy of the Cook journals after mine came with black marks on the cover of the first book. I asked if they were supposed to be there and they said no and sent me out another copy of the whole set!

The images are in this tweet here:


So if anyone wants the set unread for say half price plus postage then DM me. I'll be sure to put the money back in to FS with another order.

Edit: UK based
