Wanted - Atari books by First Publishing

Postby Ticker » Fri Mar 03, 2017 2:03 pm

Hello everyone,
I would like to buy the below book published by First Publishing, I know that the same book has also been published by Abacus and others, but those are not of interest.

Tricks & Tips of Atari ST

I live in Sweden and prefer to pay via Paypal.

Thank you for looking!

sure, I'll need to work out postage as they are reasonably heavy.

Out of interest, so you have any of the 'Abacus' books to swap ? I have some gaps in my collection :) I need volumes 0, 6 and 10, as seen in this thread: viewtopic.php?t=21471

the books aren't in 100% condition though, they have been read a few times it looks like, but all the pages are good. One of them has some sun fading to the rear too. I'll take some better pictures tomorrow :)

That's alright, not expecting books almost 30 years old to be in unread condition :)
