More Tennessee Rarities-Ron Allen-First Edition
Item #: NEW-0016188

Click image to enlarge
Ron Allen was the chronicle of rare Tennessee books and ephemera. This book is a must have for the serious Tennessee book collector.  This one I consider to be his most complete and also has a price guide, although that probably could not be considered accurate.  This is a large format book which was published privately by the author in 2003, Knoxville Tennessee.   There are some pencil notations made by me throughout the book. Due to the weight it will be sent by media mail and excessive postage paid will be refunded. Note:  The book is larger than the scan.
