Over the last forty years, Aaron Lansky has jumped into dumpsters, rummaged around musty basements, and crawled through cramped attics. He did all of this in pursuit of a particular kind of treasure, and he’s found plenty. Lansky’s treasure was any book written Yiddish, the language of generations of European Jews. When he started looking for Yiddish books, experts estimated there might be about 70,000 still in existence. Since then, the MacArthur Genius Grant recipient has collected close to 1.5 million books, and he’s finding more every day.

Told in a folkloric voice reminiscent of Patricia Polacco, this story celebrates the power of an individual to preserve history and culture, while exploring timely themes of identity and immigration.
 

Remaindered Books are books that were returned to the publisher from the booksellers across the world. When the book first enters the retail channel, the balance of unsold stock is retuned to the publishers for credit.

Remaindered books usually have black mark so they can't be returned or sold for the original price.

So... What's the Big Deal with Remainder Marks?

The mark is a dot of stripe across the top or bottom of the book on the outside of the pages. Remainder marks are no big deal if you are purchasing a book as a reading copy.

If you are purchasing the book for a collection or to re-sell, bear in mind that remaindere marks are considered to be a defect by most collectors, except in very rare cases
