    At my ritual Sunday evening visit to Half-priced Books in Houston's Rice Village this evening I spotted a nice set of books that may be of interest to someone on our forum, an eight volume set of books of all the Roman pontiffs from St Peter to Pius VI. Here are the details -

    Histoire des Souvrain Pontifes
    M. le Chevalier Artaud de Monton
    Chez Jacques Lecoffre & Cie.

    The books bear a baronial arms bookplate with the motto Virtute - Comite - Sanguine

    Quarter leather, the leather is a dark green with gold stamped title
    Good condition - only a very few very minor nicks on several of the books
    The binding is solid
    No scoring or marginal notes
    Eight volumes
    Each volume is roughly 6 x 8 inches, and roughly 3/4 inch thick
    Price: $250

    If anyone is interested, he or she may cover the price of the books, plus Texas tax, plus shipping.
    If anyone responds before Friday this week, I can use a two day 40% off coupon.
