Collecting tips:

Nobel Prize-winner Morrison's first two books are her most sought after: The Bluest Eye (1970) is very uncommon, especially in fine condition. Sula (1974) turns up more often, but for some reason the binder seems to have over applied the binder's glue, resulting in problems with the endpapers, including misgluing the pastedowns, or gluing the free endpapers flat to the pastedowns. These are surprisingly common flaws, so don't forget, check the endpapers.
