Books!

The manuscript references have all been entered into LibraryThing, resorted, reshelved, and purged.  That's a fairly major accomplishment, and one I'm very pleased with.  Now I need to pause, because I'm right on the cusp of where any room being reorganized temporarily looks like a bomb went off in it - and I don't have time to deal with losing the library right now.

I've got two questions though - one general, and one specifically for safiya_shirazi:

1)  For anyone with a clue - I have one book that is terribly musty.  It came from a used-book sale.  Holding it, it's fine.  Open it up and the smell damn near knocks you down.  It's a great book, but I can't work from it because it reeks.  Is there any solution for this, or should I buy a new copy and recycle the one I've got?

2)  Hey Safiya - I'm divesting myself of "Persian Miniature Painting" and "Mirror of the Invisible World: Tales from the Khamseh of Nizami."  Want them?  They're very pretty books, but I've never used them, and likely won't.

EDIT: I figured I deserve a new userpic for the occasion...
