    I might be in the possession of three expensive books as well… and I was thinking about selling them… but I don’t know where to start from! Email me if you can help! All three books are WWII related, written in german and printed in Berlin before and during the war.

    a person would have to be a damn fool to buy a rare book from ebay. i can’t imagine anyone with this kind of money to spend would do so, but even relatively inexpensive rare books on ebay are to be avoided like the plague! if you want a rare book, do your research and buy from a reputable bookseller.
