I got the books today, but I'm still waiting on the 3 I won the the other day, and since It'll take awhile for me to write auction pages for all I plan to list, the auctions probably won't be till early Oct.

Are any of those particularly rare (and good)? I don't know enough about them to know.

If they're first edition hardcovers, Cecelia Holland's early novels (like The Earl) tend to command shockingly high prices. They may have come down a bit, though, now that she has reissued most of these via Lulu.
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info

All of these are paperbacks, I will have some rare hardbacks in great condition to add but these have some wear to them, prices will start low.
