UNique books?

Via alfaguru and nhw 

Ten books you have that you don’t think anyone else on your friends list will have.

I immediately rule out continental crime fiction because shaz_rte has no doubt reviewed them all so – avoiding a complete run of antiquarian law books

Nina Cassian, Call yourself alive (Forest Books, 1988) – Romanian poetry
Morison’s Dictionary of Decisions (1540 – 1808) – law reports
TB Smith, Judicial Precedent in Scots law (1952)
G.L Peris, The law of property in Sri Lanka Volumes 1 – 3 (revised editions)
James Crabb Watt, John Inglis: A memoir (1893) – an important nineteenth century Scot
Whit Masterson, Badge of Evil (Mayflower, 1969) – the basis for the great Orson Welles filmTouch of Evil
A L Kennedy, Absolutely Nothing (Mariscat Press, 1998) – her poetry, numbered limited edition
Edwin Morgan, The Second Life (Edinburgh University Press, 1968)
ALex Hamilton, JAmes Kelman, Tom Leonard, Three Glasgow Writers (Molendinar Press, 1976)
Williamson (ed), The Children of Albion Rovers (Rebel INc, 1997) – the genuine first edition bought on the day of release before the recall and pulping of the edition as a result of legal action in relation to Paul Reekie’s contribution.

I’ve tried to avoid the wilfully obscure (styles books from the early nineteenth century, and treatises on the forms of deeds).

About loveandgarbage

I watch the telly and read when not doing law stuff and plugging my decade and a half old unwatched Edinburgh fringe show.

    I think I used to have a copy of the Nina Cassian. It certainly isn’t unknown to me.

    I *think* I’ve got the Williamson. But where it is, I couldn’t say, and I don’t think it’s the first edition. We’re talking filed with the Dead Sea Scrolls and Lord Lucan *g*.
