Used Basketry Books

We recently purchased an individual's personal basketry book library. The books have been in storage since the early 90's. They are used, but in good condition unless noted. Most have been out of print for many years. We are listing them by title, author, price. Since there are many books, and only 1 of each, we are not going to "scan" the covers at this time. Please call or e-mail if you have any questions.
