"Cutting through the Babble: What people mean when they don't say what they mean"
Oh and it would be great if it came from those people who make the "comic guide to..." series.
Have repeatedly unsuccessfully tried to Bookmooch it.
And a sample fabric book of men's fashions circa 1900-1930 with fabric swatches intact.

Some of the books my parents gave away, sold, or lost in moves when I was a child.
There was a Greek Myths (I thought, but it was probably based on Ovid) with a story on one page and a tipped-in illustration in sort of pre-Raphaelesque watercolour on the facing page. Not intended for children, probably. A large format, about 9x12, hardcover. Definitely 20th century as the pictures were in colour but not chromolithographs. Even on Abebooks Booksleuth nobody was able to give me any leads.
The 18th century illustrated books, , I can barely remember because I wasn't into reading about the Peloponnesian War when I was 9.
Close enough. It's a series about Vampires living in present day having "come out of the coffin" as it were. Lots of blood, campy humor and adult themes in true HBO fashion. Very entertaining.
DRM=Digital Rights Management or as the Urban Dictionary has it: "Digital *Restrictions* Management. Policy/Code that restricts usage of media that you 'own'. You buy a CD. You copy its tracks to your computer. DRM steps in and restricts how you use those tracks -- you can only play the song XX times, you can't send it to anyone, you can't copy it to your portable audio player, etc. "
Most of the ebooks out there can only be read on proprietary software or hardware. The main exceptions are Baen ebooks and books I've found on Project Gutenberg and converted myself. It's too bad that Embiid isn't still around. Even though their books had DRM, it was explicitly permitted for us to loan our ebooks to anyone we wanted with a copy of the reading software.

This book would start before Pogo had his own strips and books. It would date all the strips. Where there were two streams because of political sensitivity both would be shown in parallel. Where a strip was updated to fit a later idea, as for example the original arrival of the bats, it would show both strips with comment about the differences. It might also even have a parallel time line of news making events and cultural curiosities so we could see what he was reacting to.
This book would be very heavy and very exspensive.
