No jacket as issued. Light wear, light corner bumping, slight soiling outer edge of pages, interior unmarked. Publisher's Note: Dear Reader, Before you throw this awful book to the ground and run as far away from it as possible, you should probably know why. This book is the only one which describes every last detail of the Baudeclaire children's miserable stay at Heimlich Hospital, which makes it one of the most dreadful books in the world. There are many pleasant things to read about, but this books contains none of them. Within its pages are such burdensome details as misleading newspaper headlines, unnecessary surgery, an intercom system, anesthesia, heart-shaped balloons, and some very startling news about such things. I have sworn to research this story, and to write it down as best I can, so I should know that this book is something best left on the ground, where you undoubtedly found it. With alldue respect, Lemony Snicket (350-noto) ; ; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall

122 Snicket, Lemony THE WIDE WINDOW: A Series of Unfortunate Events #3
Harper Collins 2000 0064407683 / 9780064407687 Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Hardcover, no jacket as issued. Light wear, light corner bumping, interior unmarked. Publisher's Note: Dear Reader, If you have not read anything about the Baudelaire orphans, then before you read even one more sentence, you should know this: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are kindhearted and quick-witted, but their lives, I am sorry to say, are filled with bad luck and misery. All of the stories about these three children are unhappy and wretched, and the one you are holding may be the worst of them all. If you haven't got the stomach for a story that includes a hurricane, a signaling device, hungry leeches, cold cucumber soup, a horrible villain, and a doll named Pretty Penny, then this book will probably fill you with despair. I will continue to record these tragic tales, for that is what I do. You, however, should decide for yourself whether you can possibly endure this miserable story. With all due respect, Lemony Snicket (350-noto) ; ; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall

French language text. Clean and unmarked interior. Wrapper has very light wear and one small edge tear. B/w illustrations. ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 208 pages; "Mutô Yûgi n'est pas un garçon ordinaire. On le dit doté de pouvoirs obscurs et invincible aux jeux. Une telle réputation suscite jalousies et rivalités et nombreux sont ceux qui l'affrontent dans des duels sans merci. Yûgi relève tous les défis, mais est-il capable de battre Pegasus Jr Crawford, le redoutable créateur du jeu Magic and Wizard ? Pour l'amateur de jeux de rôles, pas de problèmes ! Yu-Gi-Oh est un régal dont il dévore fiévreusement chaque volume. Pour le néophyte qui ignore la signification des cartes et les règles du jeu de rôle, la lecture de ce manga lui demandera, au début, un effort d'attention. Mais une fois cet obstacle franchi, il sera le premier à se prendre au jeu. Kasuki Takahashi ne ménage ni ses personnages, ni les nerfs de ses lecteurs. Au fil du récit, Yûgi et ses amis affrontent des adversaires de plus en plus retords dans des joutes de plus en plus féroces, où le mental tient le premier rôle. Chaque chapitre relance le suspense. Chaque tome en appelle un autre. On ne voit pas où peut s'arrêter cet effroyable duel, s'il s'arrête un jour... À noter : Yu-Gi-Oh est publié dans son sens original de lecture, c'est à dire que le livre s'ouvre par la dernière page comme au Japon ! " [172-osl]
