Med/Ren books for sale

We've gotten to the point where we have to sell off some of our library, and there's a fair amount from our Med/Ren studies in and since college, that it's time to let go of. The books range in topic from studies of the study of history itelf, to the Medieval era, to assorted topics, places and ages within the Renaissance. Some books identify as being about the Middle Ages in general, though for some books that just means Medieval, and for some it means Medieval and Renaissance, both. (If you'll forgive me, I'll be cross-posting the whole list in both Rennie and SCA communities, because there are many people with cross-contextual interest.) Before we post to Amazon, I thought I'd stick a book-list here. For more info. about any of them (blurb, HC/SC, condition, ISBN, pricing) just contact me.

Also two books related to Gothic cathedrals, Poem of the Cid, two books dealing with Romanticism, and a bunch of Shakespeare (a number of single play/multiple play newer editions, as well as one of our old, hardbound "Complete Works"...and maybe more, as we go through more boxes...I just remember that these were set aside and boxed before, as ones to sell, but I haven't found them to list them yet.
