    The previous owner might not have marked the spines. Sometimes booksellers who throw out books that don’t sell, disfigure the covers and spines so people who dumpster dive at bookstores can’t resell them….

    Just from that image alone I wish I could have snagged them for my own collection of pulp sleaze books:

    “it’s a shame but the varied attempts at censorship are fascinating.”

    Just to pedantically get this out there…it is a far far far stretch to assert that private collectors engage in censorship when they modify their own books.

    Man, I have a collection of these and half the fun is displaying them on my shelf!
