One thought on “Sword of Conan, The

  1. I have first print editions from my father of Conan The Conqueror and The Sword of Conan. Neither has the book jacket. Both have my father’s book nameplate sticker on the inside of the cover. Both are in perfect condition.

    Is there a market for these?

    He has several other “pulp science fiction” books first printing, many numbered and signed by the authors. Would anyone be able to direct me to an interested buyer? Thank you for your time.
