 I prefer to use BookFinders because they
search Powell's Books,, Bibliocity,, Antiqbook
AND Advanced Book Exchange with just one search.

 My latest score?
"BRAINIACS: 201 Small Electric Brain Macines, and how to make them,
Including all 33 Geniacs (1955), All 13 Tyniacs (1956), and 155
Brainiacs (1957-1958-1959). Illustrated by Ann B. Baker. Berkeley
Enterprises, Inc., Newtonville, Mass. (1959). FIRST PRINTING."
 When I received the book, I found that 3 of the chapters in
pamphlet form (published before 1959) were also included.
