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. Collectible Signed Hardcover Book by Georgia physician Ferrol Sams. "When All the World Was Young" by Ferrol Sams.

Collectible SIGNED 1st edition, 1st printing hardcover IN DUST JACKET. 3RD BOOK OF AUTHOR'S TRIGILOGY. "Author Sams continues the saga of Porter Osborne Jr., a likable Georgia farm boy. In the beginning of this novel, set during WWII, Porter is a medical student. He deliberately flunks out so that he can join the war effort and is sent to Normandy as a medical assistant. Porter and his friends deal with the same issues found in any coming-of-age novel--family, religion, personal identity, and relations with the opposite sex. Porter, however, has an edge. He has strong ties to his Baptist family and to the rich soil that is their livelihood and a head full of poetry that becomes his solace and inspiration. In the face of war's devastation, he manages to keep his sense of humor and direction, learning that to understand who he is becoming he must remember where he came from."
