Acquisitions to the CeptsForm Library in 2018.
Updated 11 February 2018.
This listing follows earlier Additions posted in previous years. See the links under MY LIBRARY. I cite titles as a public glimpse at my ongoing interests as well as keeping a brief record for library management purposes. Acquisitions are the business record of library additions. Accordingly, each following citation carries only enough information to identify each title’s addition to the collection and is not bibliographically complete. However, I want to make clear what each book is about and provide subtitle words or bracketed clarifications when the title is not explicit or may be misleading.
Descriptive data includes limited elements: date of acquisition and source, a distinguishing accession number for each volume, abbreviated author, brief title, edition markers if distinctive, and cost. Accession numbers may appear out of sequence when numbers are inadvertently skipped or deliberately reused for replacement copies, noted by an “r” suffix.
Note on sources: Fair Trade Books is a high quality book store in Red Wing, featuring used books, some new, and will order options. The owner and assicuated staff choose the books to add and give credit that allows customers to draw from credit for price discounts on used titles. Recent sales changes show one more effort to keep prices low. Half-Price Books [place] the widespread number of stores offer used media at relatively lower prices and clearance items at 2 or 3 dollars. Ramsey County Library Friends provide withdrawn and donated books at greatly reduced cost.
