  1. Cleaning out my closet and have quite a few "Vintage" computer books, was wondering if any of these would gather interest on ebay. I was thinking about just selling them as a LOT.

    Trouble Shooting And Repairs Personal Computers 2nd Edition: Art Margolis

    Build Your Own 486/486SX And Save A Bundle 2nd Edition: Aubrey Pilgrim

    Hard Disk Management: Dan Gookin (Disk Included, the old big floppy disk)

    Upgrading & Maintaining Your PC 3rd Edition: Schueller Veddeler (Abacus, A Data Becker Book)

    C Elements Of Style: Steve Oualline - The Programmer's Style Manual For Elegant C and C++ Programs

    10 Minute Guide To OS/2 2.0 With Command Reference: Herb Tyson (alpha books)

    DR DOS 6.0 Complete: Manfred Tornsdorf & Helmut Tornsdorf - Abacus A Data Becker Book (A practical, hands-on user's guide to running Digital Research's new DR DOS 6.0 Operating System) - includes disk

    Power Of... Corel Draw!: Jim Karney (Mis Press) - Covers Corel Draw! Release 3.0

    The Illustrated Home Electronics Fix-It Book 2nd Edition: Homer L. Davidson - Radios, Televisions, Cassette Players, Compact Disc Players, Turntables, Cassette Decks, Electronic Calculators, Car Stereos, Videocassette Recorders, Telephone Answering Machines, Cordless Telephones, And Many More!

    The Waite Group's Tricks of the MS-DOS Masters 2nd Edition

    These were given to me about 10 years ago I guess, most look like new, and most if not all include their disk(s). Some do have small yardsale type stickers on them from years ago before they were given to me.

    Just wondering if these rang any bells, and if someone would actually want to pay for them lol, might be rare or something, you never know.

    eBay is free. It can't hurt to put them up there and see what people offer.

    Mind you, always mention the year and the publisher with the book title when the book or your work has something to do with science or technolody. This will also help anyone who is looking for rare stuff.

    A la "This Book by This Author, This Publisher, This year"
