They're not in perfect shape, or even "great" shape, but they are complete and contain a world of knowledge with valuable historical and geographical information, delicious recipes and stunning photography.
 
China - the book is slightly "bowed" and the cover has a little damage. A few of the pages toward the end are warped from moisture, but the book is complete and totally legible.
 
Provincial France - a section in the back half of the book has come loose from the binding; someone with knowledge and experience could probably repair it. Otherwise, the cover and rest of the book are fine; the book is complete and totally legible.
 
The price? Zip, nada, nothing. If you want, you can send a little someting from your area; an ingredient or some other specialty connected to your region - but this is absolutely not necessary. I just need to get them out of the house.
 
PM or reply to this post if you want them or have any questions....
 
First one to claim them gets them.

they're yours, mike ~ PM an address! Thumbs Up
 
of the two, i'd say that provincial france is probably the "best" example of the typical T/L FotW book. this is not to imply that there's anything wrong with the china volume, since it is also outstanding, it just uses a slightly different format due to the unique nature and culture of chinese cooking. both books are excellent, in my opinion - i only make the disctinction because if you find that you like these books and want to get a few more, you can expect them to be more like the france book, since it is more typical of the series.

Hot glue makes for a great fix when a book comes apart like that.  FWIW, I think Provincial France is one of the best volumes in the series.
