Description: Bidders will note that lot(s) with very low Staring Bids, i. e. $1-$5, should in no way see the Starting Bid of $1-$5 as the Book Barnâs judgment on the value of the item(s) contained in the lot(s). We have been in the Used/OP book business for 30+ years & have a LOT of inventory, with more piling up weekly. (Sometimes it seems to us that books breed at night, so there are always more of them over time!) There is NO reserve on these lots. These low Starting Bid lot(s) are meant to lower our inventory by providing bidders the opportunity to buy material at a low pricesâwe call it the "Eek" price; as in "Eek! Thatâs all it sold for?" Our lack of storage is your opportunity to buy material at a low price. Vintage Nautical Hardcover 1st Edition 1st Printing. "Coasting To Smoky" by Henry Hixon Meyer.
