London, Henry G. Bohn, 1855. xii, 545p., frontis. (port.). (Bohnís Extra Volume) 1855 1st Edition Hardcover Good No Jacket 
This book does not have a printed publication date, but if you google the translator and publisher, here is what you find: "BOCCACCIO, Giovanni (1313-1375) The Decameron, or, Ten daysí entertainment of Boccaccio. A revised translation, by W[alter].K[eating]. Kelly. London, Henry G. Bohn, 1855. xii, 545p., frontis. (port.). (Bohnís Extra Volume) Extra Volume: 5. Cordasco: 213. " This volume has been covered in clear contact paper, the original box that came with the book has also been covered with contact paper and reinforced at the corners with red electrical tape. The front cover of the book has ripped in the endpapers and is separated from the title page, so that first three or four pages before the the tissue paper that covers the portrait plate are loose. The front endpaper lists the books available in "BOHN's VARIOUS LIBRARIES published by Bell and Daldy". Discarded paper from another book has been used in the binding process to glue the tied pages together, and you can read the top of the page, which says "How I Found Liv/" and text about David Livingstone. In pencil on the title page is a name, Geo. W. Lane, and date, May, 1873. This book was published in London: Henry G. BOHN, York Street, Covent Garden. The back endpapers continue the advertisment for the publisher. The contact paper has preserved the cover, but the papers are aging and very delicate. All pages are present. Spine is broken also at page 145.

Book is clean, narrow smudges of soil on the outside of the pages where one would turn the pages and a bent corner from pages 153 through 191 where the book may have been dropped in the snow, for it corresponds with the smudge.

The Tin Drum, Grass, Gunter; Mitchell, Breon, translator
5 Grass, Gunter; Mitchell, Breon, translator The Tin Drum
USA Mariner Books Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2010 0547339100 / 9780547339108 First Mariner Books Edition 2010 Softcover Good No Dust Jacket 8 
8" x 5.25", 582 pages. Some damage to the lower spine and some loosening of three of the pages about an inch from the bottom at the front corner. Corners bumped a little. Shelf wear. Spine uncreased, text clean. Remainder mark on top of page block. Otherwise unread, clean and in good condition. "The Tin Drum knows no taboos...Again and again the narrative enters the forbidden sphere where disgust and sexuality, death and blasphemy meet. What differentiates Grass in this respect from any form of pornography, and from the so-called "stark realism" of the American school, what legitimizes these blunt forays, indeed elevates them to acts of artistic brilliance, is the total objectivity with which he presents them. Unlike Henry Miller, Grass does not seek out taboos; he simply doesn't notice them." Our book number 21022.
