New prices and several books added!

  I am downsizing my personal collection of violin books and wish to sell them.  All of the books are in good to very good condition, except as noted.   Price of the book does not include shipping, but shipping will be charged at cost only.  I am located in Guelph, ON, Canada.  All prices are in US$.  Books will be sold on a first come first served basis.  Please respond only to me at tmaurice@golden.net if you are interested. I don't want to clutter up the Message Board with replies.
