I am searching ...

HELP! Hello! I need your help!   The following books are still missing in my backgammon library. Who wants to get rid of his copy or knows where I can find one of those books?

Please watch for the details in the listing below. Often I already own a book in the paperback edition, but am still searching for the hardcover edition - or vice versa. Or I am looking for another special edition. The books of Danny Kleinman for instance exist in the original print and a later reprint by Larry Strommen. In many cases I have one edition but am looking for the other one.

I am looking forward to any hint from you via eMail. Many thanks in advance!    

Here you'll find the explanations for the abreviations in the listing.
